Arsene Wenger reacts to England speculation

As Arsene Wenger celebrates 20 years in charge at Arsenal, he must be aware that his time in north London could be almost up.

The Frenchman may well leave at the end of the current season when his current contract expires, which would free him up to take a certain vacancy which has become available in recent days.

Wenger has long been linked with the England job, and with the FA running out of homegrown options following the shock departure of Sam Allardyce on Tuesday, the Gunners boss is an interesting possibility.

When asked by reporters at his Friday press conference his views on taking the job, he replied:


“I rule nothing out. My focus is here but one day why not?”

The England role may be gaining a reputation as something of a poisoned chalice, so Wenger would be a big coup if the FA could tempt him away from the Emirates.

It may not be entirely up to him whether he remains in the Arsenal hot seat, and for a man in his late sixties, it could be one final challenge away from the Premier League – and one last chance to prove himself to his doubters.
