In a shock development after Arsenal manager Arsène Wenger announced that he would be leaving the club at the end of the season, it has been confirmed that he will be taking over at Tottenham Hotspur.

Spurs’ current boss Mauricio Pochettino will be moving to a new role in charge of the Argentina national team – a move that he has already described as ‘a boyhood dream come true.’

Shortly after Wenger’s resignation announcement, a press conference was called at White Hart Lane where the Frenchman and Spurs chairman Daniel Levy took questions from the press.

Wenger said, ‘I value the time that I had at Arsenal, but the most important quality in football management is knowing when it is time to move on.’

‘I am inspired by George Graham’s move across North London just a few years ago, and I really feel that I can take this emerging team of young talent and turn them into real championship contenders.’

‘Daniel has already promised me a significant warchest of a transfer budget once the new stadium has been paid for, and with some careful financial management and shrewd investment in overseas developing talent I think we could be at the start of something very special.’

Arsène was asked if he could identify why Arsenal had struggled so much since moving to the Emirates.

He said, ‘I inherited a number of problems from Bruce Rioch – his legacy is still rearing its ugly head in 2018.’

‘I simply did the best that I could and everybody benefitted from my time at Arsenal.’

‘Have you seen Stan Kroenke’s new speedboat? Simply beautiful.’
