Cape Town - Long-serving Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has revealed two players who he regrets not signing for the London club.
ITVfootball report that Arsene Wenger had the chance to sign both Cristiano Ronaldo and Didier Drogba but failed to lure either player to the Gunners.
Having seen a barren trophy run ended this year when Arsenal won the 2013/14 FA Cup, Wenger has seen these two players hurt his side on numerous sides after signing for rivals Manchester United and Chelsea.
"My biggest regret, I was so close to signing Cristiano Ronaldo.
"And not only did I not get him, but he signed for Manchester United.
"That, of course, still hurts today."
But missing out on Ronaldo is not the only high profile player that Wenger has missed out on.
"I would have loved to have managed Didier Drogba, for two reasons," said the Gunners boss.
"One, I missed him when he played at Le Mans in France, not even in the top league. I knew there was a good player there and I missed him.
"And secondly, because he hurt us so much in big games that all this pain would not have happened."
