Arsene Wenger has admitted that he still misses the day-to-day grind of training a club side as he continues to weighs up a return to coaching against the state of his health.
Arsene Wenger has settled in well at FIFA as their number two, but the former Arsenal man misses coaching.
That’s not surprising. He was always adamant that he would take up another coaching job if he was to leave Arsenal, so much so that we were a little surprised when he took up the job at FIFA, instead.
Given how hard Unai Emery found the Premier League yet he still managed land a job with Villarreal, there is no doubt that many clubs would snap Wenger up, even if he is 70 now.
“Every day, I want to train, I’ve been doing this all my life,” he told Europe 1.
“I’m 70 years old, I gave a lot. Should I play Russian roulette a bit, even when it comes to my health?
“I can’t do things by halves, so I ask myself this question.”
He was the nasked what it would take to get him back into the hot-seat to which he replied, “It will be in conditions that I consider optimal. Otherwise, I will not do it.”
Mikel Arteta recently admitted that he speaks to Arsene Wenger to get the great man’s advice as he forges ahead in his new career as Greatest manager in the History of the World.
Or, if you prefer, Arsenal’s new manager who isn’t doing too badly at all.
