Former Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger has revealed that he had received offers ever since leaving the Emirate Stadium but turned all down.
The 69-year-old manager has admitted his bound and love for his former team geared up his rejection on many offers to coach English teams.
Wenger decided to keep the names of the clubs who have contacted him private. Currently working as a pundit with beinSports, Wenger has been without a management duty for 17 months now ever since ending his 22-years of being in charge of Gunners.
“I’m an Arsenal man and after that I’m a professional. I can’t stop working,” Wenger told Sky Sports News.
“I decided to move out of the Premier League because I am too linked with Arsenal. I had opportunities to work in England but I turned them down.
“I don’t want to tell you [which clubs] because there are people in charge and it would unfair to them.”
The manager who spent most of his time at Arsenal on the top 4 position of the Premier League table went on to share about the success and how the club has financially developed over the years.
“I know it is normal that people always want more. We won a lot and we built the [Emirates] stadium,” Wenger said.
“It’s difficult to explain today the circumstances in which we built the stadium because the turnovers today have been multiplied by five.
“When we decided to build the stadium, we had a turnover of £90m and the stadium was £430m. Then the pressure is really there and I think to come out of that period in a very healthy situation was a little bit of a miracle.”
Wenger currently have an offer waiting for his approval to become shortlisted on the chief of football development role.
