Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger admits he is open to managing an international team in future after saying he wants to remain in football for the rest of his life.
The Frenchman is the most successful manager in Arsenal history after taking over in October 1996.
He has won three Premier League titles and seven FA Cup trophies during his 21-year reign as manager.
He is widely regarded as one of the greatest managers in Premier League history but he has not enjoyed as much success in the second half of his Arsenal career as he did in the first.
Gunners fans have become frustrated and impatient with Wenger over a lack of silverware in recent years but the Frenchman signed a new two-year contract with the club at the end of last season.
The 68-year-old has now admitted that he wants to stay in football for the rest of his life and hinted that he could move into a director role at the Emirates Stadium.
“Until the end of my life I will be involved in football,” he told beIN Sports.
“I don’t know in what kind, as a director, as a manager. As long as possible as a manager but one day that will stop, but I will stay in football of course.”
Wenger has been liked with the England job in the past and admitted that he would be open to managing an international team in the future.
“Maybe yes, I will do it at some stage but until now I like to be involved every day in the life of a club, you know because the real test is there.”
Arsenal return to Premier League action on Saturday against north London rivals Tottenham.
