I will never retire from football, admits Wenger

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says that he wants to manage at a World Cup at some point in his career.

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

Any approach has yet to materialise, but Wenger admits the less labour-intensive world of worldwide football could suit him later in life.

Wenger, 68, has 18 months left on his contract at the Emirates Stadium having previously been linked with the England job.

When asked about the possibility of moving into worldwide management, Wenger told beIn Sports: "Maybe yes I will do it at some stage but until now I like to be involved every day in the life of a club because the real test is there".

However, City's large squad means he has started just six Premier League games this term so could be tempted by more regular football in north London. "It's a fact my life is linked with football, in what way will be linked to my physical state".

"As a director, manager, I will be a manager as long as possible, but i will stay involved".

The Frenchman has always been linked with the Les Bleus national team job while England have considered him on more than one occasion. He also serves as a TV pundit in France during global breaks and major tournaments, and laughed at the suggestion that he could find himself coaching at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
