The Frenchman has a fairly bleak outlook on the future of illegal activities in the game.
Arsene Wenger has given the Arsenal manager’s opinion on match-fixing after two men in England have been arrested for the illegal activity.
Singapore national Chann Sankaran, 33, and 43-year-old Krishna Sanjey Ganeshan have been charged with conspiracy to defraud.
Wenger believes that things like this can probably never be truly eradicated from football.
“Can it be eradicated completely? I am not sure,” the 64-year-old was quoted by BBC Sport.
“We absolutely have to fight against that with the strongest severity.
“Maybe the lower divisions are a bit more under threat because it is a bit more anonymous, there is less money so it is easier to buy people, but I don’t think that exists in the Premier League at all.
“I don’t believe that in England people fix matches, but we live in an international world and you cannot just stop it at the border any more. It is a new problem that we all face.
“I still think that 99.9%, the English game is completely clean.”
Four more people have been arrested in connection with the accusations aimed at Mr Sankaran and Mr Ganeshan, of which three are thought to be footballers.
Wenger knows first hand what it’s like to see the affects of match-fixing when the boss was in charge of AS Monaco back in 1993.
Fellow Ligue 1 side Marseille were found guilty of the crime and thrown out of European competitions by UEFA.
