Arsene Wenger is looking to join a club with “ambition” following his departure from Arsenal, where he served as manager for 22 years.
At the age of 68 and with three Premier League titles already to his name, Wenger could have been forgiven if he wanted to retire. However, a life away from the pressure of professional football does not appeal to the Frenchman even now.
“I don’t know what will happen, but I’m in front of an empty page and I have to write the next chapter,” Wenger told beIN SPORTS.
“I’m not very gifted to enjoy life and lie on the beach. I envy friends of mine who can do that.
“Very quickly, I’ve become bored, because it’s an addiction I have created. I have the addicted gene and you have to live with it.”
Regarding the level of club he would like to work with, Wenger said: “A big club has to have ambition. To get the fan to wake up and say: ‘Ah, today my team plays and maybe I will see something special’.”
Arsenal have appointed former Paris Saint-Germain boss Unai Emery to replace Wenger, who has been linked with the Real Madrid job recently vacated by Zinedine Zidane.
If his public statements are anything to go by, Wenger seems as uncertain about his future as anybody else.
