Arsene Wenger has revealed his two biggest regrets at Arsenal ahead of his final game in charge of the club.

The 68-year-old Frenchman’s reign at Arsenal will come to an end of Sunday when the Gunners face Huddersfield Town on the final day of the season.

Arsenal have nothing to pay for – they will finish sixth regardless of the result – but the players will want to perform for their outgoing manager.

Wenger won three Premier League titles and seven FA Cups at the north London club but admits not lifting the Champions League is his biggest regret.

His team reached the final of the competition in 2006 but were beaten 2-0 by Barcelona.

Wenger says the hugely disappointing defeat to Atletico Madrid in this season’s Europa League is another major regret from his time as Arsenal manager.

‘My biggest regret is that I have not won the Champions League for Arsenal… I was 13 minutes away,’ he told BT Sport.

‘The other regret is perhaps the way we went out against Atletico Madrid.

‘I still don’t understand how we could lose this two-tie game. We should have been done after the first game.’

Arsenal paid tribute to Wenger last week after his final home match in charge of the club.

‘I enjoyed some aspects of it, yes – and not all,’ Wenger said, reflecting on his send-off.

‘It was not always easy to cut slowly with what you do everyday and always you want to do it as well as you can and you don’t want to forget to thank people who deserve it.

‘There are some people here who I employed 20 years ago who did fight for me every single day so it is not easy to say goodbye.’
