Former Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has admitted that there are possibilities of him coaching at the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
Arsene, who parted ways with Arsenal in 2018, has a vision of coaching a national team at the 2022 World Cup as he has not been into managerial duties since leaving the London club.
Wenger, after 22 years of managing Arsenal, is still involved in the game through a special comments position for broadcaster beIN SPORTS.
The 69-year-old was quoted as saying by beIN SPORTS:
“I could see myself working for a team.
“I will have enough time (and) distance with my last job (to give me perspective), and I would not be against that.
“It will be interesting to see how they develop, but overall I must say I always wanted to go to the World Cup because I felt it is the job of a manager to be where the best football players in the world play football.
“Hopefully, you will see me, touch wood, in Qatar in three years’ time.”
The Frenchman said that it is just a matter of time he returns to coaching but he turned down quite a few opportunities as he was not ready to get back to what he does best at that moment.
During his time at London, Wenger won 17 trophies at Arsenal after taking over in 1996 – winning three Premier League titles, seven FA Cups and seven Community Shields.
He was succeeded by Unai Emery as the head coach of the Gunners, who took Arsenal to the final of the Europa League last season and finished 5th in the English Premier League.
