Arsene Wenger 'Surprised' At Job Offers As He Prepares For Arsenal Farewell

Arsene Wenger

Wenger is departing the Gunners after 22 years in charge at the end of the term, and while he will leave behind a squad that contains some talented footballers, the Gunners sit 34 points adrift of leaders Manchester City with two games to play.

The Arsenal captain was due to retire as a France player after the World Cup finals in Russian Federation this summer.

Speaking yesterday, Wenger revealed that interest in his services had been a bit larger than he imagined. Wenger has already been linked with a plethora of jobs, and he admits that he has already received a number of offers.

"Like you, I will continue to support Arsenal for the rest of my life".

"But I'm not analysing or considering anything".

"I would like to finish by saying I will miss you".

"I have not made the decision so, at the moment, I would say yes [I will carry on in coaching], spontaneously yes".

"The Premier League, we can accept this but in my work there is no pressure because it doesn't change my philosophy".




He told Sky Sports News: "He's a special man and a special person - full of class, full of integrity and I really wish him all the best". Overall, I will work.

"What will I do?"

"He had a special vision for the future, the Premier League".

Meanwhile, Arsenal are confident of naming a successor to Arsene Wenger before the World Cup kicks off next month.

It has been claimed that Ozil has not started 25 of the Gunners' 58 matches this season, and was allowed to sit out the club's UEFA Europa League group stage games, as well as those in in both domestic cup competitions.

The Gunners have no specific deadline for the recruitment process, but an announcement is expected before the tournament starts in Russian Federation on 14 June.

When pushed on whether he would approve of either Allegri or former Barcelona boss Enrique, Wenger added: "I know these guys are very competent and all good names".
