Arsene Wenger has expressed his intention to return to football in January having received “enquiries from all over the world”.
The 68-year-old ended his reign at Arsenal last season after a disappointing end to his time at the Emirates, but he feels re-energized and ready to take up a new challenge.
“From my 22 years at Arsenal, I have big experience on different levels. There are enquiries from all over the world,” the Frenchman said. “There are associations, national teams, it could be in Japan.
“I believe that I will start again on January 1st,” said Wenger, who joined Arsenal from Japanese club Nagoya Grampus Eight in 1996.
The former Gunners boss has been linked to the Japan head coach job, and more recently to a boardroom position at French giants PSG, but Wenger explained he does not know what role he will take up.
“I feel rested and am ready to work again. But where? I don’t know yet.”
Wenger also addressed the issue of Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil calling time on his international career with Germany following their disappointing World Cup, and his falling out with the national federation.
