Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger has not ruled out taking over the Three Lions ‘if he is free’.
The English FA are on the lookout for another manager after Sam Allardyce was sacked earlier in the week and there have been growing calls from everyone the Arsenal boss should be given the job.
Arsene Wenger has always admitted he would welcome the possibility of taking over the national team, but that will be after the end of his contract with Arsenal. Not before.
Speaking at his press conference today, Wenger was asked about the job and he gave the guys at the England FA a bit of hope.
“Why not?” Wenger said. “My priority is to do well here though. This has always been my club, but one day if I am free, why not, but at the moment I was focused on my job.”
“[So], one day if I’m free, why not?”
Arsene Wenger’s contract expires at the end of the season and whether he signs a new one remains to be seen. The man himself has said all contract talks should be on hold until the end of the season and will be determined by how successful the season pans out.
