Arsene Wenger: ‘I will coach a team in World Cup after ending Arsenal tenure’

'Maybe I will do it at some stage but until now I like to be involved every day in the life of a club'

'Maybe yes I will do it at some stage but until now I like to be involved every day in the life of a club because the real test is there,' he told beIn Sports.

'Four or five weeks is a different experience, it's more concentrated but I believe the real experience of managing a team is on a daily basis.

'But I will not always have the physical strength to do that so maybe I will move into (international coaching).'

Wenger has in the past refused to rule out managing England, claiming last year: 'One day, if I'm free, why not?'

He was reportedly courted by the FA in September 2016 before Gareth Southgate was named as the permanent successor to Sam Allardyce.

And according to the Telegraph, the Frenchman was their also their preferred choice for the role when Roy Hodgson resigned in the wake of England's defeat by Iceland at Euro 2016.

On whether he could manage at the 2022 World Cup, Wenger said: 'Maybe, you never know!'

Though Wenger resisted both opportunities to leave Arsenal, the Frenchman admits that coaching at the World Cup is 'of course' a tempting prospect.

'It's a fact my life is linked with football, in what way will be linked to my physical state,' Wenger claims.

'But until the end of my life I will be in football I don't know (if) as a director, as a manager, as long as possible. But one day that will stop. But i will stay in football of course.'

On whether he could be on the bench at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, he said: 'Maybe, you never know!'
