Arsene Wenger has claimed he’s not sure where his future lies, amid links between the former Arsenal manager and Real Madrid.
Wenger claimed that he will make plans before the start of the World Cup and that he’s not sure if he will take on a demanding roll, and is trying to get some perspective away from football right now, in order to decide what his next move should be.
“Do I still have the desire to be a coach? It’s the question I’m going to have to answer in the next two weeks,” he said on Telefoot.
“Do I still have the desire to be a coach? Yes. Do I have the desire to throw myself into another crazy challenge? I don’t know. It’s a job that requires total commitment.
“I must give myself a little distance, which is something I’ve never done. I’ll have to see how much I miss it.”
Wenger or no, Real Madrid are in the position where they need a new manager, and that’s not set to change, with Zinedine Zidane walking out on the club after winning his third Champions League trophy.
A host of names have been linked with the role, including that of Mauricio Pochettino, Antonio Conte and Jurgen Klopp, along with former Real Madrid player and youth team coach Guti.
Given the World Cup is fast approaching and key players are waiting on the new Real Madrid manager before they make a decision over their future, the club know they have to act fast, or risk plunging their summer into chaos.
