Arsene Wenger is not a fan of staying indoors and feels to be an outsider in his current job as he admits to missing the coaching life.

Widely considered as one of the greatest managers of all time, Arsene Wenger helped Arsenal reach new heights during his 22-year-long tenure at the club.

It was during Wenger’s reign in the 2003/04 season that Arsenal did something never done before and unlikely to be done again – win the Premier League title without suffering a single defeat.

The Frenchman failed to enjoy success in Europe, but he left the Emirates in 2018 with a CV glittering with domestic glory – three Premier League titles, seven FA Cup trophies – and several individual accolades.

Ever since, he has been working as Chief of Global Football Development for FIFA. But the 70-year old concedes he is missing being a manager and will make a return under ‘optimal’ conditions.

“Every day, I want to train, I’ve been doing this all my life,” Wenger told in an interview with Europe 1

“It will be in conditions that I consider optimal. Otherwise, I will not do it.

“I smelled the grass every morning, and today I am more in muffled, administrative environments, and in offices. So obviously, I feel a bit of an intruder in there.”
