Arsène Wenger returns to management for one-off matches

BeIN Sport report that former Arsenal manager Arsène Wenger, now Director of Football Development at FIFA, will return to the sidelines on two occasions in the coming months to manage in a charity match and a friendly.

Wenger will first take charge of a “Legends” team at Marseille’s Stade Vélodrome tomorrow for the “Match des héros” charity game organised by Didier Drogba. The 71-year-old will have the likes of David Trezeguet and Eric Abidal under his management, as well as Basketball star Tony Parker.

The former Strasbourg man will then manage a team made up of players from two Saudi Arabian clubs, Al-Hilal and Al-Nassr, in a friendly against Paris Saint-Germain – although this latter game is yet to be confirmed.
