Ex-Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger on his next job in football

Ex-Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has been speaking to German outlet BILD recently discussing a number of topics.

‘I have not stopped working at this level for 35 years’

One of which was if Wenger would consider a return to management, to which he replied:

 “I’m a bad football retiree. I have not stopped working at this level for 35 years. Maybe two or three months rest is not so bad for my health. Then it starts again. “

After admitting he is still open to managing another team, Wenger was asked if he would consider managing in the Bundesliga:

“Bundesliga? Probably not. But how it goes on I can not tell you today. I do not know it myself. “

Wenger also commented upon Bayern Munich and their current form:

“I’m surprised, like all Germans, but not worried. They always come back. Bavaria had a bad phase. But for me, two things are important: That they now remain stable at Kovac and that the self-confidence is rebuilt within the club. Then there will be a strong Bayern team again.”

Wenger’s Arsenal legacy

While Wenger’s stint at Arsenal came to quite a sour end, there is no doubting that Wenger will go down as one of the best managers in Arsenal and Premier League history.

In total Wenger managed Arsenal 1,228 times in all competitions.

Wegener would win a staggering 704 of those games, drawing 279 and losing 245.

Arsenal would also score 2,285 goals under the Frenchman while letting in 1,219.

Wenger also guided Arsenal to three Premier League titles, seven FA Cups and seven Community Shields.
