Arsenal

Wenger suggests international future

14th November 2017, 14:14 by Jack Ogalbe

Arsene Wenger has hinted that an international role could be what finally persuades him to move away from Arsenal.

The Frenchman has been in charge of the Gunners since 1996 but their dwindling fortunes over the last few years have suggested that it could be time for him to move on.

Both the England and France jobs have been mentioned as potential options in the past and Wenger has suggested he could well take up a position in charge of a national side if the right job comes along.

Although he remains content in his current role, the 68-year-old admits the slower pace of international football could benefit him as he gets older.

"Maybe, yes, I will do it at some stage. But until now I've liked to be involved every day in the life of a club, because the real test is there," he said.

"Four or five weeks... OK it's a different experience, it's more concentrated. But I believe the real experience to manage a team is on a daily basis.

"But I will not always have the physical strength to do that, so maybe I will move into that [international work]."
