Departing Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has claimed that now is the right time for him to end his 22-year association with the club.
The Frenchman will take charge of the Gunners for the final time when they take on Huddersfield Town at the John Smith's Stadium on Sunday afternoon.
Wenger, who joined the Gunners in September 1996, has revealed he is already focusing on the future and his life away from the Emirates.
"I need to look forward, I am a guy that does not look back much," Wenger told Sky Sports. "Everywhere I have worked, I have done that.
"But I need a new project, I need to commit my energy to something else and now I think it is time for me to move away because I am not part of the future any more. So the quicker it finishes now, the better it is.
"I have to accept it [his departure from the club], it is part of the process and somebody has to come in now and take care of the future.
"When you are not part of that, it is better that it finishes and you move somewhere else."
