PSG rule out move for Wenger

Arsene Wenger has dominated the headlines recently since he announced his resignation from Arsenal, with people wondering who will replace him at the Emirates, and where he will go next.

Former club captain Mikel Arteta is currently the favourite to replace the Frenchman, while Thierry Henry is also said to want the job. While it is seemingly getting closer to Wengers replacement being announced, it seems much less clear where 68-year-old’s next job will be.

One of the options is thought to be a move to join French Champions PSG, and while they have just appointed Thomas Tuchel as their manager, it has been speculated that he could move to the French capital to become the clubs new director of football.

But in a wide-ranging interview with L’Equipe, PSG President Nasser Al-Khelaif denied that this would be the case, despite his close and personal relationship with Wenger:

“He is a close friend, I have a lot of admiration and respect for him and everything he has done in football.

“He’s a big man. This is one of the first people I spoke to before buying the club, and he told me one thing that I never forgot: ‘You buy a diamond and it will be cut and shined’.

“I do not know what he will do, but he will have a lot offers. Today, the sports director [of PSG] is Antero Henrique and he will stay.”
