Arsene Wenger has insisted that he knows nothing about claims suggesting that Carlo Ancelotti could replace him at Arsenal.

Wenger signed a new two-year contract with Arsenal back in May after having led the Gunners to their third FA Cup title in four years.

However, there have been calls for Wenger to leave Arsenal in recent years after the Frenchman failed to lead the Gunners to the Premier League title since their famous unbeaten triumph back in the 2003-04 campaign.

It remains to be seen when Wenger will actually leave Arsenal and who will be brought in as his successor at The Emirates.

Ancelotti has been touted as a possible replacement for Wenger after he was sacked by Bayern Munich early on this season.

However, Wenger insists that he actually has no idea about who will replace him at the north London side.

“I don’t know who will replace me at Arsenal,” Wenger told beIN SPORTS when asked about the possibility of Ancelotti taking over.

“When you are manager of a club you have to work like you’re there forever, because it demands total commitment.

“I believe as well that a football club works when everyone does their own job well.

“My job is to prepare the team for the next game and be responsible for technical policy at the football club.

“The job of my board is to choose the next manager. I don’t want to do the job of my board.”

Arsenal are currently in fifth place in the Premier League table and six points behind leaders Manchester City as they look to try and win the title this season.

The north London side finished fifth and missed out on Champions League qualification last term, but they did win the FA Cup.
