Former Arsenal Manager Wenger Confirms Work With FIFA

Arsenal New Manager

Former Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has confirmed that he is contemplating taking up a technical role at FIFA.

But Wenger says it wouldn't deter him from making a return to management.

The 69-year-old has been out of work since May 2018, when his 22-year association with Arsenal came to an end.

The Frenchman told beIN SPORTS: “I just want to share what I've learnt, and give it back to the game in a different way.

“I'm not sure that I would stop coaching as well, because the devil is still in there. But I have to see, do I like it, and can I be efficient.”

Wenger went on to clarify that the role would include informing players about potential options once they retire.

He said: “Dealing with coaching efficiency. Dealing with after-career potential for players, to educate them to potential jobs for them after the career of a football player.

“Because you forget the drama of a player is to get to the top of the world and at 34 years where a young man is a bye-bye over.

“I think there is enough to do there to help the players come back and help to develop football.

“As well to continue to improve the rules of the game. We can still move forward on that front. And always to be ahead of the evolution of society. That is absolutely vital.”
