Arsene Wenger: I could take on international role after Arsenal era

Alejandro Moreno and Alexis Nunes wonder if Arsene Wenger would make a good international manager following his career at Arsenal.
Arsene Wenger has told beIN Sports he could be tempted to take over as coach of a national team once his reign at Arsenal is over.

Wenger has been linked with both the France and England jobs on several occasions, and said the lighter schedule involved in international management could be beneficial 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]."


Arsene Wenger has been in charge at Arsenal for 21 years.
Wenger has been in charge at Arsenal for 21 years and was given a new two-year contract in the summer despite missing out on Champions League football for the first time during his Gunners career.

He also serves a TV pundit in France during international breaks and major tournaments, and laughed at the suggestion that he could find himself coaching at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

"Maybe -- you never know," he said. "I haven't decided that, to me it's just a fact that my life is linked with football.

"In what way will depend on my physical state. But until the end of my life I'll be in football. I don't know in what kind [of role], as a director, as a manager.

"As long as possible as a manager, but one day that will stop. But I will stay in football, of course."

==========================================================================================

Exactly the kinda thing Arsenal fans worry about, he's planning to stay in football as manager as long as possible...may be 90 years even possible when he's 100 years old!! So easily another 20 to 30 years, Arsenal is stuck with him!
Field day for DeTimes, made the day for shano n merl can have now clear shot at Wounderkid XXIIX version of his project for next 20-30 years!!

As long as he doesn't coach France, I'm happy. England or Ireland? Yes, please.

Nay.
Comrade Arsene Wenger had just presented his 5-Year Plan - 2017/18 to 2021/22 - to the Politburo and President Silentov Stanoski had just rubber stamped it.

What Cat is out of the bag??

He just says he might consider international management after finishing his contract with Arsenal. Its not like he revealed anything that's considered secretive.

If he came out and revealed that he admits success in winning titles as secondary to developing players, then we can say what the title suggest.

I agree, and its the same old cat, he is just letting us know he has options, which actually is delusional as no major national team would want his outdated tactics



- until Wenger moves on, they'll always be the also-rans in the major competitions. A club in elite purgatory. Always good enough to make it to the big race, never fast or smart enough to push over the finish line in first place. That's all about the manager. Until he changes, Arsenal fans will continue to celebrate glorious failure.

Not really, he wants to be in football as manager as long as possible, he feels day to day management aka Arsenal manager is the job he wants to do. He doesn’t want international team management n feels jurnos always try to push him out of Arsenal by asking those silly questions. He wants to stay in Arsenal as manager possibly till he lives!! Bingo!!
