Dein was deposed as vice-chairman three weeks ago after a fallout with the board over the possible involvement of American billionaire Stan Kroenke in the club.

But Wenger revealed that the pair remain in close touch and that there should be a place for Dein in football. Wenger said: "He may not be at the club but he is still a friend so of course we talk.

"Whether he will return at Arsenal, I do not know. Will he stay in football? Yes. Will he come back to the club? I don't know.

"But David Dein is needed in football because this guy has revolutionised this club and also English football. He is top quality."

Wenger, who was fined pounds 2,500 for the confrontation, said: "I was punished for what happened against Portsmouth and frankly that was a joke.

"If I have been punished for what I said, I know some managers who would now be in jail!

"When you see what is said to referees in the corridors, I can't believe it. What I said to him was, 'For ****'s sake, where did you see a free-kick there?' It is nothing compared to what I have seen and heard."

Wenger wants to see a tougher approach from his team in away games next season, especially against sides in the bottom half of the table.

He said: "Maybe we need to look at the team structure in those kind of games."
