Arsenal Legend Arsene Wenger Speaks On Taking Over As Man Utd Manager

Arsenal's legendary former manager Arsene Wenger has revealed he had a chance to take the Manchester United job… but refused to say when.

The Gunners icon also had talks with some of Europe's other big clubs – including Juventus, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich.

And when French Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint Germain were mentioned in Wenger's interview with the Times, he said: “I was offered that job a few times.”

The 70-year-old also had the chance to manage the French national team but asked whether he was offered the Man Utd job as well, he responded: “Yes.”

But he refused to be pressed on exactly when he was offered the chance to take charge.

He said: “I don’t tell you that.

“But I can tell you Man Utd offered me the job but I don’t tell you when.”

The former Monaco and Nancy boss is currently Fifa's head of global football development.
