Arsene Wenger says international football is not for him
Arsene Wenger says ‘international football is not for him,’
Former Arsenal defender Lee Dixon says Arsene Wenger has expressed reservations about the merits of managing in international football as reports link him with the England job.
“Whenever he’s spoken about it to me or when I’ve been in his company, he’s always said that international management is not for him right now, and that’s gone right up until this point.
“He’s at the end of his contract, if he wins something with Arsenal or if he doesn’t win something with Arsenal,
I think it will come to a head one way or another.
“Would he then just fancy backing down a little bit?Knowing him, he likes to be involved in the day to day basis with the game…whether international football fits that bill I’m not sure.” -Dixon told
Quizzed about the job on Wednesday night, following Arsenal’s Champions League victory against Basel, Wenger was asked if he was flattered by the reports.
He added: “Of course. But my priority has always been this club. Until the end of this season I’m here. And I am completely focused on that.
“When pressed if his future was closer to being resolved. That’s not decided.
My priority is always Arsenal FC and I have to assess how well I do until the end of the season.”
