Wenger open to worldwide role after Arsenal

Wenger open to worldwide role after Arsenal

Arsene Wenger says Manchester City are "not unstoppable" this season while taking another swing at the refereeing during Arsenal's loss to the league leaders a fortnight ago.

Arsene Wenger wants to manage at a World Cup finals, but isn't ready to throw in the towel at Arsenal just yet.

"They are a good side but they are not an unstoppable side", he told BeIN Sports (via Sky Sports).

Ahead of Arsenal's North London derby on Saturday against Tottenham, Wenger was asked about the possibility of managing an worldwide side in the future, after his time at Arsenal comes to an end.

The Frenchman added: "Yes of course [I'd be tempted] because my life is linked with football and, depending on my physical state, I will [always] be in football".

Wenger had spoken on Tuesday about the possibility of managing an global side in the future, possibly looking as far down the road as Qatar 2022, despite the fact he will turn 69 next October.

Wenger is preparing for the North London derby this weekend.

"Until the end of my life I will be in football, I don't know in what kind of [role] as a director, as a manager...as long as possible as a manager, but one day that will stop". "But until now I like to be involved every day in a life of a club because the real test is there".

"I don't know more than you".

Wenger will have transfer business on his mind again in January, with the futures of impending free agents Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez to the fore.
