Wenger to give away FA Cup medal if Arsenal beat Chelsea

Arsenal manager Arséne Wenger says he will give away his FA Cup winners' medal even though victory would make him the most successful manager in the competition's history.

The Gunners face Chelsea at Wembley on Saturday as they look to claim their third FA Cup in the last four seasons and seventh overall for their manager.

That would give Wenger the outright record, which he currently shares with former Aston Villa boss George Ramsay.

Chelsea, meanwhile, are eyeing a double and first Cup crown since 2012, but Wenger will not be keeping any memorabilia if Arsenal can stop their rivals.

Wenger: "At home you would not guess I am a football manager"

"I have no medals at home from anything," the Arsenal boss told reporters.

"You come to my home you will be surprised. There is no trophy, no medal, nothing.

"I give them always out. There is always a guy at the club who did not get a medal, a member of staff so I have given it to him. So you are always a medal short and you will always find someone who takes it.

"I am not a back-looker. I am always forward. At home you would not even guess that I am a football manager, apart from the fact that a football game is on.

"I am not separated from football. I am completely in football. I watch the game that is on the night but I don't look back what we have won, what we have done and all that, what we have lost.

"I have memories of the human beings, human experiences. That is more shared emotions and things like that."
