Arsene Wenger Wants To Become Manchester United Manager
Former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says it would a "dream" to manage Manchester United.
The 69-year-old, who left The Emirates in 2018 after 22 years in charge, has "confidence" and "courage" to take on the job - even suggesting he has "ideas" on how to coach the current team.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side could only scrape past League One side Rochdale in the EFL Cup on Wednesday night. In fact, they have picked up just eight points in their opening six Premier League games.
But a passionate and confident Wenger made his intentions clear in a fascinating interview.
Speaking to beIN Sports on punditry duty, the Frenchman said: "Manchester United is a dream job for any manager. At least, any manager with courage and confidence.
"Yes, they need - in my opinion - four first team players. But around those players, I see a squad that is capable of challenging.
"They aren't as far away as people think.

"The team have no pattern of play, no pattern of pressing. There is a team there, but it needs to be coached and developed. Like I said, four players and they can be challengers. For everything."
The Frenchman was then asked if he was indeed interested in taking over the hot seat at Old Trafford.
"Like I said, Manchester United is a dream job. For any coach. I have confidence, I have courage...and you're right, I have ideas."
Wenger left behind a stunning legacy of 22 years, 10 major trophies and more than 800 Premier League games at Arsenal.
But his tenor at the club became sour towards the end of his time in North London.
