Wenger: I have turned down Premier League offers

BOSS: Arsene Wenger.

Arsene Wenger says Premier League teams have contacted him after his Arsenal periode.

Wenger guided Arsenal into the top four of the Premier League and then to Champions League for 20 consecutive seasons.

His reign at the Emirates ended after the Gunners finished fifth and then sixth in his final two seasons in charge.

“I’m an Arsenal man and after that I’m a professional. I can’t stop working,” said Wenger.

“I decided to move out of the Premier League because I am too linked with Arsenal. I had opportunities to work in England but I turned them down.

“I don’t want to tell you [which clubs] because there are people in charge and it would unfair to them.”


Wenger’s next move could see him leave management and accept a role with FIFA, and he says he will decide whether to accept the job in the near future.

“It’s chief of football development in the world and that decision will be made very soon,” he said. “They look for people who have big experience and knowledge of the game who have learned a lot.”
