Arsene Wenger is back in the running for the Bayern Munich manager’s job.

It appears that reports that Arsene Wenger is out of the running to be Bayern Munich manager are wide of the mark.

Wenger who is currently away on commercial commitments with sports network beIN admitted to talking to Bayern chief Karl-Heinz Rummenigge about the vacancy.

He also suggested that further talks may take place soon.

In an interview with beIN, the former Arsenal manager gave a detailed itinerary of the events so far.

He said:

“On Wednesday afternoon, Rummenigge called me. I could not answer and by politeness, I called him back.”

“He was in his car going to the game against Olympiakos.”

“We talked for four to five minutes maximum and he told me they had assigned [Hans-Dieter] Flick to be the coach.”

“He will manage the next two games.”

According to the Frenchman, the Bayern supremo is considering Wenger for the job.

He added:

“He [Rummenigge] asked me if I would be interested because they are looking for a coach.”

“I told him I didn’t have any thoughts about it – it needs some time to have a think about it.”

“We decided together we will talk next week because I’m in Doha until Sunday. This is the true story.”

Arsene Wenger could still very well become the next manager of Bayern Munich.
