Fresh from winning a record 7th FA Cup title with Arsenal on Saturday, Arsene Wenger was buzzing after masterminding a 2-1 win over arch-rivals Chelsea.
“I’m not a young man. I’m a very young man but I don’t look very young!” Wenger joked.
“That’s the basic difference. I love my job and I love to win. I love to build, I love to get people going and I love what I do. I invite you to live with me one day and one thing you cannot question is my commitment.”
“It’s absolutely fantastic,” he was quoted as saying by the club website. “I’ve won a few doubles and I know what it’s like once a team is on a high," he said.
“It’s the intensity of the emotions. It’s a special day for a football club and the cup is hugely popular in every single country. It’s just the explosion of the passion of people, " the 67-year-old manager added.
He said that when Chelsea equalised via Diego Costa, there was tension in the air but Aaron Ramsey’s goal just three minutes later calmed his nerves.
“When Chelsea equalised, I thought, ‘Here we go, that will give them a mental boost’. We thought they could take advantage of it, but we responded straight away. I was worried at that stage,” Wenger added.
