Speaking to the German outlet Sport Bild, Leno stated that Arsenal has more fans all over the world as compared to Chelsea and Arsenal.

“You can't compare, of course, Arsenal is a world club, the club here in London. Not Chelsea, not Tottenham - Arsenal is the club here with fans around the world.

"No matter where we are, also in the USA or in Asia, there are many fans of Arsenal everywhere,” Leno pointed out.
