Wenger Hints At Managing Manchester United Soon
Former Arsenal gaffer, Arsene Wenger has hinted on a move to Old Trafford as replacement for present Manchester United boss, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
The French manager says he has “ideas” that could improve the situation at the club.
Since their season opener against Chelsea, Manchester United have won only once in the Premier League, a hard-fought 1-0 win against Leicester City.
They then managed to squeeze themselves into the fourth round of the EFL Cup having won Rochdale on penalties.
They are now poised to lock horns with Chelsea once more. Although, it must be said that they aren’t the strongest of sides at the moment.

United currently sit eighth on the Premier League standings and Wenger sees a manager of his stature as having the ability to improve the squad.
“Manchester United is a dream job for any manager,” Wenger said. “At least, any manager with courage and confidence. Yes, they need – in my opinion – four first team players.
“But around those players, I see a squad that is capable of challenging. They aren’t as far away as people think. The team have no pattern of play, no pattern of pressing.
“There is a team there, but it needs to be coached and developed. Like I said, four players and they can be challengers. For everything. Like I said, Manchester United is a dream job. For any coach. I have confidence, I have courage…and you’re right, I have ideas.”
The French gaffer has been away from the dugout since his resignation from Arsenal in the 2017/2018 season.
Could the legendary former Arsenal manager be in line for a coaching role at the Theatre of Dreams?
His comments about a managerial role at Manchester United has drawn a number of reactions on social media.
While some were enthusiastic about seeing the experienced manager replace Solskjaer, some were quick to mention that the purist’s methods were already outdated.
