Arsene Wenger Rejects Managers Job Just A Few Days After Final Arsenal Game

Just days after Arsene Wenger's last game with Arsenal, Le Sport via Mirror have reported that Saint-Etienne have been in contact with the 68-year-old about a future managerial role.

Wenger oversaw his final Arsenal game last Sunday, beating Huddersfield.

Since removed from his Arsenal post, he's attracting interest including Sanit-Etienne.

The Ligue 1 outfit currently sit at a respectable 8th place in the French top flight with a game to go and require three points and specific results elsewhere to qualify for Europa league action next year.

Talk of Wenger taking over from current boss Jean-Louis Gasset reflects a sense of discontent within the club and suggests next season they will be pushing for champions league qualification.

After 22-years at the North London club Arsene had his last game in charge of Arsenal last Sunday beating Huddersfield 1-0.

Following an up and down few years Wenger failed to finish on a high, crashing out of the Europa League earlier in the month following a cagey two-leg clash against Athletico Madrid finishing 2-1 on aggregate.

After hearing about Arsene Wenger leaving Arsenal, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp said the Frenchman has had a "fantastic" career and the Premier League will be "different" without him.

PSG are also interested in tempting Wenger back to his home country with a manager's role.

Wenger is expected to take some time to consider his options before returning to work; whilst everyone involved in the industry wishes him all the best on his next chapter in life.
