Wenger walks out to a guard of honour in his last game as manager of Arsenal at the Emirates/skysports.com

Former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger does not believe he is ready to manage against Arsenal yet.

The French man’s tenure ended with victory over Huddersfield Town, with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s first-half goal enough to secure Arsenal’s first points away from home this calendar year.

Wenger intends to remain in management and claims to have already received numerous offers from other clubs, but he does not yet feel emotionally prepared to face his employers of the last 22 years.

“I’m not ready for that at the moment,” he said in his post-match press conference.

“It would be very difficult. I think on this day I’d stay at home. I don’t know. I don’t envisage that at the moment.”

Asked whether he had received offers of work, he said: “Yes I had offers, of course. At the moment, I did not even speak to anybody. I’ve had many offers.

“When you come out of such a long process, you cannot jump out and just the next morning go somewhere else. It’s impossible.”

Wenger did not reveal whether any Premier League clubs have inquired about his services.

“Maybe it’s better I go somewhere else,” he added, when asked if he would consider working in English football again.
