Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says the Premier League will have a ‘world championship of managers’ this season.
Pep Guardiola and Antonio Conte have both moved to England this summer while Jose Mourinho and Jurgen Klopp are also in place, reports the Arsenal website.
The 66-year-old manager says everybody can expect an enticing season with the recent change in managerial changes at top Premier League clubs.
‘Everybody’s ambitious – never has the Premier League been gifted with so many ambitious people or clubs at the start of the season,’ Wenger said.
‘We have Mourinho at Manchester United, Conte at Chelsea, Guardiola at Man City, Klopp at Liverpool, so it’s a little bit a world championship of managers as well.
Wenger continued to say that he is anticipating a tough Premier League season during the 2016-17 campaign.
‘Everybody will, of course, be highly focused on doing well and it will be interesting. One thing you know from the start; not everybody can win the championship and next year, more than ever, it will be tougher for everybody.’
Arsenal host Liverpool in their opening Premier league encounter at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday.
Kick-off has been set for 17:00.
