According to a report, former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has not ruled out leading
a national team at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
The Frenchman left North London in 2018 after winning three Premier League titles and
seven FA Cups after nearly 22 years at the club.
Wenger has been linked with management and coaching jobs across Europe, including
ahead of the new Premier League season at Newcastle following the departure of Rafael Benitez.
“I will have enough time (and) distance with my last job (to give me perspective), and I
would not be against that.
“I must say I always wanted to go to the World Cup (finals) because I felt it is the job of
a manager to be where the best football players in the world play football.
“Hopefully, you will see me, touch wood in Qatar in three years’ time.”
Wenger went on to say he had rejected “some nice offers” because he did not yet feel
ready for a return to the game, but added: “You will see me in a dugout again, when,
I don’t know exactly.”
Wenger said: “I still cannot live with the fact that I will never be on the bench again.
I might go for an intermediate position.
