Wenger would like to manage in Germany if he were to leave Arsenal
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has revealed that he would consider managing in Germany if he were to leave the Gunners in the future, according to The Daily Mail.
The Frenchman, who arrived at Arsenal in 1996 and is currently the Premier League’s longest-serving manager, is yet to sign a new deal to remain in north London and despite the belief that he will eventually put pen to paper, rumours continue to circulate about the 64-year-old’s future.
Wenger himself has stated that he expects to remain in charge of the club next season, but has now stated that he would like a shot at managing in the Bundesliga before he retires if he ever departs the Emirates.
Speaking to BeIN Sports, Wenger said: “If I was to go somewhere then I think it would be in a different country because I am so much Arsenal that I would not like to coach anywhere else in England.
“Germany (is an option) because I am of German culture a little bit and it’s a country where I have never worked and I am very close to it.”
Wenger had spent his entire professional career in France before moving Nagoya Grampus Eight of Japan, where he moved in 1995. He enjoyed a successful 18 months in the J-League, winning the Emperor’s Cup and the 1995 Manager of the Year Award, but moved to England in 1996, taking charge of his first Arsenal game as the Gunners won 2-0 at Blackburn in October of that year.
He recently led Arsenal to qualification for next season’s Champions League.
