Wenger discusses Zidane future and effect of Brexit on the Premier League

Former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has spoken on the future of compatriot Zinedine Zidane, with the former Real Madrid boss out of work having left the Spanish giants at the end of last season.

Zidane guided Madrid to Champions League glory last season before his shock resignation, their third European triumph in succession, and has been linked with the likes of Bayern Munich and Manchester United.

“He’s in a very difficult position, he’s been in the biggest club in the world, and he can only go to the second biggest club in the world,” Wenger explained to beIN SPORTS.

“That means he is in front of something, or I go for a long-term project and I go to a different aspect of my job, and I want to be involved in building up a club.

“Or I go straight away again to a team that can compete, that can win the Champions League again. That won’t be easy, personally.

“In his case, I would go for a different aspect of my job.”

Speaking on the possibility of Zidane managing in the Premier League Wenger said: “Yes, why not? If you want to work at the top, it has to be England nowadays.

“But there are many uncertainties with Brexit and the uncertainty: will the Premier League continue to dominate financially? We’ll know soon.

“England is the only country with six clubs that can fight for the championship. In all the other countries basically you can say in December who will win the championship and there are some countries, like France, where you can say it in September.”
