Former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has declared his intention to return to football in January having received “enquires from all over the word”.

The 68-year-old Frenchman ended his reign at Arsenal last season after a disappointing end to his time at the Emirates, but now feels re-energised and ready to take up a new challenge.

“From my 22 years at Arsenal, I have big experience on different levels. There are enquiries from all over the world,” Wenger said. “There are associations, national teams, it could be in Japan.

“I believe that I will start again on January 1st,” said Wenger, who joined Arsenal from Japanese club Nagoya Grampus Eight in 1996.

The former Gunners boss has been linked to the Japan head coach job, and more recently to a boardroom position at French giants PSG, but Wenger explained he does not know what role he will take up.

“I feel rested and am ready to work again. But where? I don’t know yet.”
