Arsène Wenger to return to management

17 October 2018

At the end of last season, Arsène Wenger decided to leave his 22-year reign at Arsenal behind him. During his time as a manager, he won three Premier League titles as well as seven FA Cups.

After deciding to take some time away from football the 68-year old former Arsenal manager feels he’s ready to return to management. Planning to make his return in January of next year, Wenger claims he’s had enquiries from all over the world since taking time out of the game.

During an interview with German newspaper Bild, Wenger not only revealed his return but addressed the previous issues with the Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil.

“I believe that Germany needs Ozil. I hope that Joachim Low can convince him that he will come back.

“Ozil is a super football player, was not the worst in the World Cup. I did not love that he left the German national team.

“I love it when the players are as good as possible. He loses a bit if he does not play at an international level.”

Before joining the Premier League, the Frenchman spent time in Japan and has hinted at possibly returning or taking another internal job.
