FIFA chief Wenger delivers latest response on Arsenal return

FIFA chief Arsene Wenger has again stated he has no interest in returning to Arsenal.

He was asked about his exit and a possible return in an evening hosted by former vice-chairman David Dein in promotion of his new book, Calling the Shots.

Discussing that possibility, he said: “I haven’t been there since 2018. After 22 years as manager, maybe I arrived at the end of the road and people wanted a change.

“The club had chosen a different direction and I can understand that completely. Sometimes you need to have a completely new staff and my presence there could have been a problem.

“So I stayed away completely to give the club the chance to rebuild a new connection with a new manager. That’s why I never talked about Arsenal and never came back to the Emirates because I didn’t want to be a presence that is maybe not good for the club.

“But I still feel that my life is definitely linked with Arsenal so now I support them from my TV and I am also very busy travelling the world for Fifa.”
