The French coach spent 22 years in charge of English Premier League club Arsenal and he has yet to decide if he will continue in a new club.

At the end of the 2017-2018 English Premier League season, Arsene Wenger said goodbye to Arsenal after 22 years coaching the Gunners.

But he has yet decided where to coach yet, and now he says he might not return very soon to action.

“My future is unknown. Even for me,” Wenger was quoted by Sky Sports.

“I enjoy daily life now and I have been traveling a lot recently all over the world.”

“I am enjoying a little bit less pressure. And more freedom as well. But I miss the competition,” he continued.

“I turned down some clubs. But basically my job is to help people get the best out of them and I will continue to do that – in what way I do not know.”

Gotze was intimidated by Klopp when they met for the first time

Mario Gotze and Jurgen Klopp met for the first time at Borussia Dortmund, and the German midfielder explains how this was.

The Frenchman’s managing career started in 1984 when he coached Nancy in France for three years.

In 1987 he moved to Monaco until he was hired by Nagoya Grampus Eight in Japan for one year.

In 1996 he joined Arsenal and stayed there for 22 years.

“To do that first I have to get the best out of myself and I will try to continue to do that as well. Will I do it on the field or will I do it by sharing my knowledge with people who are in the job?” Wenger added.

“I believe that a manager has an impact on three levels: on the life of the individual players you can sometimes help to make their career; the style of play and the results of the team; the impulse you give the structure and development of the club.”

“This third aspect was very important to me and I could feel at the time it was not the right moment to leave because I wanted to develop the club,” he concluded.
