Arsène Wenger wants to return to management

Following rumours of talks between former Arsenal manager Arsène Wenger and Paris Saint-Germain, the 72-year-old Frenchman has admitted his desire to return to the touchline while serving as a pundit on BeIN Sports.

“You know, I can contribute in a different way. I still miss it. I still miss the intensity. So, overall, I’m still vulnerable. I’m like a guy who no longer takes drugs. I also think that I can contribute in a different way,” he said.

The longest-reigning Premier League manager continued, giving an emotional rendition of what football means to him. “It’s caring about the beautiful game, the values that we cherish, and also this thing we have in our bodies, in each cell of our bodies. We care, we worry, we are desperate, but when you come here, this theatre of dreams, we realise what it means.”
