Former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is no doubt one of the best managers in the world. Though his 22-year stay at the Emirates Stadium didn’t produce many trophies as one would expect, that didn’t take away from the fact that the Frenchman is a role model to both players and ‘infant’ managers.
Barely a month after his decision to step down as the Gunners manager, the Frenchman has reportedly received an offer from Ligue 1 side Saint-Etienne, according to LeSport.
The Ligue 1 side struggled all through the just concluded season and they are set to hire the 68-year-old tactician so as to turn things around in the upcoming season.
However, Wenger has failed to accept the offer as he claims he is not ready to switch to his homeland in the summer.
According to Calciomercato, Wenger has refused to consider the Ligue 1 club’s offer, hoping to get a better and lucrative offer from another suitor before the start of next season.
In other Gunners news, Mikel Arteta seems to be the next Arsenal manager as he is heavily linked with the job.
The former Arsenal and Spain midfielder was part of Manchester City’s technical crew, who won the League trophy but he is now looking at the prospect of moving a step higher in his young coaching career.
