Wenger eyes national coaching job

Arsene Wenger  has hinted he could move into international management once he finishes his career at  Arsenal.

The 68-year-old has 18 months left on his contract at Emirates Stadium and has previously been linked with the England job on several occasions.


It is understood that the Football Association sounded Wenger out over his availability after Roy Hodgson resigned in the wake of England’s exit at Euro 2016 but the Frenchman chose to stay in club football.

Paris Saint Germain was widely expected to be his preferred destination should he continue in management when eventually leaving the Gunners but when asked about the possibility of a national team job, he told beIN SPORTS: “Maybe, yes I will do it at some stage but until now I like to be involved every day in the life of a club. The real test is there. Four or five weeks [in a tournament] is a different experience, it is more concentrated.

“But I believe the real experience to manage a team is on a daily basis. I will not always have the physical strengths to do that so maybe I will move into that.”
