The Frenchman celebrated the 18th anniversary of his arrival at Arsenal last month and is set to turn 65 later this month.
Asked what advice he’d give a young Wenger, the Arsenal manager replied: “We are all gifted at something in life.
I had no red carpet to get where I am and I had to fight and work hard every day
“The only advice I would give is to really try to identify something you really love and give it all.”
Reflecting on still being in management as he approaches his 65th birthday, Wenger added: “I have to accept my fate.
“Maybe I have been very lazy in a former life and have to come back and work for the laziness I have shown before!
“I accept it and enjoy it and am ready to fight as long as I can. When you come from where I come, where I started and look back a little bit at my career, you know that one quality you need is to fight.
“My father was not in football, I had no red carpet to get where I am and I had to fight and work hard every day and that is what I did every day.
“As long as I am capable of doing it, I will do it.”
