Former Arsenal boss, Arsene Wenger has said that he is open to a return to football but insists that he might not return to management but rather pick up another role in the sport.
Wenger who ended his 22-year coaching run with Arsenal in the summer of the 2017/2018 season earlier said he wanted to take charge of a new club in 2019.
The French has now told BBC at the launch of a new partnership with a sports technology company, which he is joining as an investor and operating partner that he is at a crossroad and isn’t sure if he would make a return as manager.
“I thought I will come back into management very quickly, but I enjoyed taking a little distance.
“Now I’m at a crossroads.”
The 69 year old who has kept himself with punditry and football speaking since his departure from the Emirates said he was sure he was going to back into football but didn’t know in what capacity that would happen.
“You will see me again in football. As a manager… I don’t know,” Wenger said.
Wenger went on to say things are less intense for him at the moment and that it has given him ample time and angle to see the mistakes managers make and that he was willing to plunge the lessons learnt back into football.
“I’m less intense, but I have a better perspective of what’s going on. I see the mistakes managers make and I don’t pay the price for it.
“I came to the conclusion I want to share what I learned in my life, because I think life is only useful if, at some stage, you share what you know.
“In what way will it be? Will it be in just winning football games, or will it be in another way? That’s what I have to decide and that decision will come very quickly.
“Football is still my passion. I will come back soon – but I cannot tell you exactly in what capacity.”
