Arsene Wenger Runs 8-10km Every Single Day
In a fascinating interview with The Guardian last year, Wenger spoke in depth about life after management, a year after deciding to leave Arsenal following a 22 year spell at the club.
"I read a lot, do a lot of different sports, daily, so that occupies me." he said.
"I run 8-10 km a day. I travelled a lot. I did a lot of game observation, charity, many conferences on football, on management, on motivation, on the meaning of life."
"I personally don't know what it means. I am always under stress a little bit but what was good is I don't have to get up or if I have an interesting lunch I don't have to leave because I have a commitment.
"I discovered that freedom of time in front of you. It is a good feeling."
The 70-year-old, who left his beloved Arsenal at the end of the 2017/18 season after struggling for results in the last few years of his time in North London, is still without a job.
It was reported in August that Wenger was hoping to take over from Ronald Koeman as Netherlands manager after he decided to join Barcelona.
