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.”
