Arsene Wenger Hints At Interest In England Job [Reports]

Arsene Wenger’s time at Arsenal maybe coming to an end.

Arsene Wenger’s 20 year reign maybe about to come to an end according to reports published in The Telegraph and The Sun this morning.

Both article cite an interview broadcast on beIN Sports, in which the Arsenal boss remained coy over suggestions that he might succeed Roy Hodgson as England manager.

The 66 year old manager has been linked with the now vacant position, after Roy Hodgson stepped down following England’s defeat at hands of Iceland and subsequent exit from the European Championships.

After Wenger was quizzed about his future during the course of the interview, he refused to rule out the possibility of taking over a England boss, merely stating,

I have a contract until 2017 with Arsenal and I have always respected my contacts, but I do not yet know what I will do afterwards.

Wenger was then asked whether or not he had been in contact with the FA, a question he refused to answer directly, pointing out that England had a young team packed with potential.

Although Wenger did not give a firm commitment to either Arsenal or the FA, the Frenchman maintained that he would honour his current contract.

This would seem to leave the door open to England, but leave the FA in the position of having to employ an interim manager for much of the next year.
