PSG confirm no job offer for Arsene Wenger

The outgoing Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has made it clear that he is keen to carry on managing next season, and he has said he will find it difficult to stay in the Premier League and end up bringing a new team to the Emirates, so most of us have assumed that he would be given a job by his good friend the Qatari PSG President Nasser Al Khelaifi.

Unai Emery was replaced as the coach at the French giants by Thomas Tuchel, but Wenger was reported to have been offered the Director of Football position to assist the manager.

But now Al Khelaifi has made it clear that the current occupant of that position will not be moving aside to make room for Arsene. The Shiekh was asked about a job offer for Wenger and he said: “He is a close friend, I have a lot of admiration and respect for him and for everything he has done in football. He is a great man. He is one of the first people I spoke to before buying the club. And he told me one thing that I have never forgotten: “You are buying a diamond and you must prune it and make it shine.” Arsène, I don’t know what he will do, but he will have a lot of offers. Today, the sporting director, is Antero Henrique and he will stay.”

So it looks like Wenger will not be going to the obvious destination, and he has implied he has no idea yet of what he will be doing next. He said just a couple of days ago: “I have not even emptied my desk yet and in a way, I am still in a state of shock.

“I am going to give myself until June 14, the day before the World Cup begins, to decide.

“The question is do I still want to coach, to be on the bench, or is it time to take up different functions?

“The one thing I can say for sure is that I will continue to work.

“But do I want to continue to suffer as much? I want to continue to defend my ideas of football, that’s for sure.

“Spontaneously, I would say I still want to coach, but I can’t really say that yet for sure.”

Would anyone like to suggest the perfect job for Arsene next season?

    None of your business anyway, u wanted him out.Where he goes shoudnt be your problem. Put your focus on Gadizis and the merry-go round circus he has brought upon us.

    I wish Arsene well in whatever he now does. But I am more interested in Arsenal and our immediate future , not our ex-employees and I believe many share my view.

    1. Arsene is Out says:

      I am feeling very worried about what we are up to so far this summer. Arteta does not inspire me with confidence at all, I am specially worried about how some players will react to taking orders from him. If I am Auba, Ozil, Mhki, Ramsay, Laca, somebody who has 0 accomplishments as a coach and 0 accomplishments as a player, I might not feel to happy about this situation.

      Also Socratis is another Mustafi. He is not a good defender. I have watched him play many times and all I see is a greek Mustafi.

      So far, I want to be optimistic and supportive but I am not feeling it.

    Monaco, we’ll take Jadim.
    Seriously, it’s great place, constantly buys young players and devolps them into stars. Far lower expectations than PSG or Arsenal (obviously), and any CL, domestic trophies or titles are appreciated and rarely expected.

    I for one hope and pray Arsene coaches, manages, and directs everything football at Monaco. I never hated the man, just frustrated his time was so obviously passed, and he stubbornly refused.

    I’ll always DESPISE Stan the most for that. Stan should have saved Wenger from himself, rather than greedily squeezing few more eggs from his golden goose.

    So I hope to see Wenger successful at Monaco, and his philosophy and values of football inheirited by the next generation of superstars.

  10. John Ibrahim says:

    dont see why arteta cant be successfull if gazadis give him the players

  11. Innit says:

    As long as its not here then I don’t care

    Even upstairs Wenger could influence the new manager so it’s better he is at a new club

    1. John Ibrahim says:

      Don’t Worry Wenger will not influence the new manager …..

      Mislintat will…..maybe Raul too….

    distinguished & passionate fellow gooners pls pls & pls let’s support whoever gets the arsenal sure looks like arteta so I’m excited coz he’ll be offering something new and also bring a little bit of uncertainty for his contemporaries.Arteta like many people including us the fans,pundits,even rival fans know we lack spine and grit & defensive it’ll be completely unreasonable for whoever comes in to not work on these.what I’m actually concerned about going into next season is the kind of Players we bring in and let go and the new mgt team to give him what he wants.I’d really like for the new team to be ruthless with the pampered lords at arsenal (ozil Ramsey mustafi bellerin) and let them know the either shape in or be shipped out for their daddy’s gone.I think arteta’s job is mainly to first correct the lazy and lackadaisical defending when being attacked and then dump the stupid “pass pass & pass don’t shoot @goal “nonsense.however my biggest wish is for us to get a very good dribbler as a winger who’ll also have eyes and passion for goals (pavon). So here’s my wish team list for next season
    Def:R.B bellerin,new rb or A.M.N, L:B :-monreal kolasinac C.B:-Caglar,mavro,sokratis,holding,chambers,kos
    D.M:-Elneny,xhaka, new dm C.M :- wilshere, seri,ozil,
    Fwd:- mhki,pavon/malcom,iwobi,auba,lacazette .yes no Ramsey let him go and do his beautiful stuffs else where

    1. jon fox says:

      And yet you would keep Elneny, Xhaka and Bellerin plus the clearly finished Koscielny. And still expect improvement? These were three of our worst five players last year, Mustafi being our worst and Bellerin second, with Xhaka a close third.

    When Ramsey leaves for Inter Milan, Wenger will follow!
