It feels like Arsene Wenger has been on the cusp of leaving Arsenal for a while now.
The Frenchman has been the subject of numerous supporter campaigns (to put it mildly) in recent years, while he’s often rumoured to be on Paris Saint-Germain’s radar every time they see-off another manager.
But could Le Professeur be tempted with a move into international football, once his days at the Emirates come to an end?
In a recent interview with beIN SPORTS, the 68-year-old hinted it could happen.
He said: “Maybe, yes I will do it at some stage but until now I like to be involved every day in the life of a club.
“The real test is there. Four or five weeks [at a tournament] is a different experience, it is more concentrated.”
Wenger was up there among the bookies favourites when Roy Hodgson resigned in the wake of England’s exit at Euro 2016, but he eventually chose to stay in club football.
And after winning the FA Cup with the Gunners at the end of last season, he signed an extension on his contract which has 18 months left to run.
And he’s still very much enjoying life in club management.
He added: “I believe the real experience to manage a team is on a daily basis.
“But I will not always have the physical strengths to do that so maybe I will move into that.
“I haven’t decided that but it is a fact that my life is linked with football.
“In what way will be linked with my physical state.”
So, a weary Wenger as England manager for Qatar 2022?
