Arsene Wenger has reportedly said ‘no’ to the chance of managing Fulham for a second time.
The former Arsenal manager, who always said he would go straight back to work when he left Arsenal, has spent the last year relaxing and doing some punditry work.
He hasn’t been short of offers but few have come from England given the Frenchman’s ties to Arsenal and his reluctance to manage another club that could face them on a regular basis.
That hasn’t stopped Fulham asking Arsenal’s greatest ever manager if he wants to take charge of them in the Championship. Not prepared to take ‘no’ for an answer the first time, they asked him again.
Wenger’s response was the same.
While I don’t think Arsenal fans would have any problem with Wenger managing a club like Fulham, it would still be incredibly strange to see him on the touchlines with another English club.
Besides, no matter how his final years panned out at Arsenal, he’s too good for the Cottagers.
Sorry, Fulham, but you know it’s true.
