Wenger has reiterated that he can not envisage a future away from the sport that he loves, even if that means stepping aside at Arsenal and trying his luck at worldwide level for the first time, or even taking on an upstairs role.

The 68-year-old's 21-year spell at looked to be coming to an end last season with his contract set to expire and dissenters seemingly growing by the day.

Arsene Wenger failed in an attempt to take the England worldwide to the Emirates Stadium in the summer but wants to revisit the potential swap deal when the transfer window re-opens.

However, much to everyone's surprise, the Frenchman was awarded a new two-year deal, taking his stay in North London to nearly 23 years if he sees out his contract.

When asked about managing an worldwide side, he told beIN SPORTS: "Maybe, I will do it at some stage but now I like to be involved in the life of a club".

"But I will not always have the physical strength to do that so maybe I will move into [international coaching]".

He, however, said neither he nor any other inmate has ever seen Ram Rahim in jail and only heard about him from officials. The case was registered by the CBI in December 2002 on the directions of the Punjab and Haryana High Court.


"Four or five weeks..."

"The real test is there".

Asked whether he could be on the bench at the World Cup in Qatar, he said: "Maybe, you never know".

"In what way will depend on my physical state". I don't know [if] as a director, as a manager - as long as possible as a manager.

Could you see him wearing the blue coat one day? "I am 35 years in this job [as a football manager]".

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.
