Arsene Wenger is currently the most experienced and longest serving Premier league manager but it appears that the French gaffer is not tired of the game after all.
Arsene Wenger has revealed that he is most likely to leave club football for international football management someday, reports the Express.
Wenger has been long linked with a move to Real Madrid but he remains ever present at Arsenal. He was also strongly linked with managing the Three Lions and the French national team on many occasions.
Given the tedious nature of club football and considering his age, the French manager reckons that it would be easier for him to manage a national team.
“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,” Wenger told beIN SPORTS.
“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.”
Arsene Wenger took over the managerial reigns of Arsenal from Bruce Rioch in 1996. He extended his contract by two years in the summer despite leading the Gunners to a horrendous season in which they failed to qualify for the Champions league.
There is currently a great divide in opinion between the fans of Arsenal over Wenger’s continuous cling to power at the club. Other have called for his sack while some feel he’s the right and only manager for the club.
Wenger is currently the most successful Arsenal manager ever – he was won three Premier league Cups, Seven FA Cups among others.
We think it is time for him to go. He has done well.
