Arsene Wenger has no plans to retire when he leaves Arsenal
Arsene Wenger has revealed he has been inundated with job offers, but insists he has not decided where he will work after Arsenal.
The 68-year-old Frenchman will leave the north London club after 22 years in charge at the end of the season.
And while he is no mood to retire, he admitted he has been surprised with the number and variety of job offers. He said: “Yes. More than I expected!”
While confirming he does not want to become a full-time football pundit, he claimed he favoured being on the training ground and explained he will take time to consider his next move.
Wenger explained: “At the moment I focus on doing my job well. I didn’t analyse anything or consider anything. I want to work well until the last day of my contract, and then after, I will rest a little bit and go from there.
“What is for sure is that I will be active. My brain demands work and is active. I have a huge experience of management and people management. Overall, I will work. What will I do? I don’t know yet.”
Quizzed as to whether he would work in England, abroad, with a club or an organisation such as UEFA or FIFA, he added: “I don’t want to go any further on that or into any detail at the moment.
“Honestly, I don’t know. I have to think about that. I like green grass and I like to walk on it every morning. I don’t know if I’ll continue that, it’s possible.”
