A year after leaving Arsenal, Arsene Wenger has revealed that he is unsure of his return to management but will rejoin football under a different capacity.
Wenger has not been short of offers since he and the Gunners parted ways at the end of the 2017/18 season, with Fulham twice having attempted to appoint him as their head coach. The former Arsenal boss has joined football-tech company PlayerMaker as an investor and operating partner while also being a pundit for beIN Sports.
Wenger cast a shadow on his return to football management when asked if he could envisage a comeback to the dugout, "I don't know. I will go back into football for sure. In what position I don’t know, whether that is as a manager or not. The appetite, the desire, is still there. I know what kind of life I have in front of me so I have to decide that now.
"I thought, do I go straight back into that heat again? It is not so much the heat but once you go in there, there is nothing else. So I thought let’s take a bit of time. Ok, two months, three months. Now I have a problem to get in again! Originally I said I will manage straight away again, then I thought maybe I take a little distance.
"I came to the conclusion that I want to share what I learned in my life. Because life is only useful if at some stage you share what you know. In what way will it be, will it be just winning football games or in another way, that's what I have to decide. That decision will come very quickly."
