Wenger: I won't choose my successor

Arsene Wenger says he will have no input in choosing his eventual successor at Arsenal.

Jolly: Wenger, Martinez's battle

The Gunners travel to Goodison Park this Sunday to face Everton, with Wenger coming up against Roberto Martinez -- a man who has been tipped by some to take over at the Emirates Stadium when the Frenchman steps down.

But while Sir Alex Ferguson had a major influence on David Moyes’ appointment at Manchester United last summer following his retirement, Wenger insists he will play no part in such a decision at Arsenal.

“I have told you many times, it is not my job to show, to choose who will follow me after, when I leave one day,” he said.

Meanwhile, Wenger suggested the rules on importing youngsters may need to be changed by FIFA following Barcelona’s pending transfer ban, although he still had some criticism for the Catalan club.

“Certainly they have not respected the rules,” Wenger said. “The rule is quite simple, you cannot move the players before the age of 16 unless their parents move for professional reasons, so that of course creates a big debate -- do the parents move for professional reasons or not? In this case, FIFA has judged the parents moved for football reasons and that is why they were banned because they have not respected the rules.

“What is not right is that the children move under the age of 16 without their parents. That is absolutely not right. Do they have to change the rules so you allow children to move with their parents if the club takes care of the parents? Maybe we have to go that way because it happens.”
