Arsene Wenger has revealed he will take a month off at the end of the season before making a decision on his next career move.
It was announced earlier this month that the Frenchman’s 22-year reign as Arsenal boss will come to an end this summer, but it has not been confirmed if he plans to retire, to look for a manager’s job elsewhere or to take another role in football.
Wenger has no plans to retire from the game and, if he doesn’t stay in club management, could take a director of football role or return as a director of football.
The 68-year-old does not know what his next step might be, though, with the likes of PSG and Real Madrid having been linked with him.
“Once I’ve finished honestly I don’t know [what his next move will be],”
“I am confused a little bit at the moment and I have decided to take a little distance for four or five weeks before I make a decision.
“I need to move away a little bit to take perspective on my situation and analyse it in the most objective way possible, even if it is not easy.
“I will then decide where I go from there.”
Wenger takes his side to face Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sunday, then on Thursday they face Atletico Madrid in the Europa League, having drawn the first match 1-1 in London.
