Former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has apparently clarified that he will join another club in the future but not in the Premier League.
The French manager, who has been Arsenal boss for 22 years, has revealed that he is not ready to play against the Gunners with another club.
#merciarsene I still can’t believe Arséne Wenger has managed Arsenal for the last time. 3 league titles including an unbeaten season “The Invincibles” and a record 7 FA cups for one manager is outstanding. Beyond the success of silverware though dedicating 22 years of your life to one club is amazing and deserves all the respect in the world. Thank you for all the memories, appreciating football as an art and loving this great club as much as I do. No matter what now watching Arsenal will never feel quite the same.. Merci Arséne #Arsenal #inarsenewetrust #coyg #arsenalaustralia #thankyou #wenger ❤
The 68-year-old, who is currently out of job, has admitted that he is receiving many offers but has hinted that his next job will lie away from the Premier League.
Asked if he would come up against Arsenal in the future, Wenger replied: “I’m not ready for that at the moment. That would be very difficult. I don’t envisage that at the moment.”
“I had offers, yes of course. But I did not speak to anybody. I had many offers. When you come out of such a long process you cannot jump out the next morning and go to work somewhere else. It’s impossible.”
“Herbert Chapman – maybe our greatest manager – was from [Huddersfield]. For me to come here on the last day had a special meaning when you know the history of our club. There was a photo just in front of the dressing room, where Chapman smiled at me because he was in the photo.”
Wenger, who managed 1,235 games with the North-London side, has won 17 trophies since joining the side in 1996.
