Arsene Wenger has revealed he has had enquiries for his services from ‘all over the world’ as he looks to get back into football.
Wenger finally decided to hang up his Arsenal overcoat at the end of last season after 22 years in charge of the North London club.
Since his departure back in May, the Frenchman has been linked with a number of jobs, with a role at French champions PSG one of the most recent to be speculated, and now the 68-year-old has revealed that he is close to making his return to football, although was unable to reveal where, or in what capacity.
“I feel rested and am ready to work again,” Wenger told German newspaper Bild.
“I believe [I will] start again on 1 January. I don’t know [where] yet.
“There are associations, national teams, it could be also in Japan.
“From my 22 years at Arsenal, I have big experience on different levels. There are enquiries from all over the world.”
Wenger’s spell as Arsenal manager makes him the most long-standing, and most successful in the clubs history, winning three Premier League titles and seven FA Cups.
