Arsene Wenger next job: Will ‘former Gunners boss’ return to management this year?



It’s been almost two years now since Arsene Wenger has been in charge of a club, but he’s been linked with a return to football management in recent months.

Wenger has been kept on his toes with several high-profile posts having already arisen this season.

Mauricio Pochettino and Unai Emery have already lost their jobs at Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal respectively. Spurs hired Jose Mourinho as the Gunners brought in Mikel Arteta, with Carlo Ancelotti replacing Marco Silva at Everton just before the New Year.

Sofia, Bulgaria – November 1, 2016: Arsenal’s coach Arsene Wenger seconds before UEFA Champions League football match between Ludogorets Razgrad and Arsenal at Bulgaria’s National Stadium.

But Wenger’s name remains on the list for several clubs eyeing a change in management in 2020. 

Having joined the north London outfit in October 1996, the French boss left in May 2018 as their most decorated manager. He clinched three Premier League titles and seven FA Cups in a stellar spell at the English side.

Despite landing a role as FIFA’s chief of global football development in November, the 70-year-old is still being rumoured with a return to a place in the dugout.

But it’s not just different clubs linked with Wenger. The France national team are 7/2 to provide him with his next managerial role in football.

Didier Deschamps is the current boss of the French side, having guided them to 2018 World Cup glory in Russia.  He’s been in the job since 2012, but the upcoming Euro 2020 tournament this summer could be his last for the national team.

And Wenger may just replace the France legend, particularly if they return home unsuccessful.

In club terms, it’s Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain who are leading the race to snap up the Frenchman. They currently have German Thomas Tuchel in the hot seat. But he could find himself under huge pressure in the coming months. And that pressure will surely become insurmountable if he fails to deliver an elusive Champions League trophy.

 It’s currently 6/1 for Wenger to make the switch to PSG next.

But there is also some undiscovered territory for the former Arsenal boss to conquer. He spent a year with Japanese side Nagoya Grampus Eight in 1995/96 and has been linked with a move to China in 2020.

It’s currently 7/1 for Wenger to move to any Chinese Super League side. And it’s 8/1 for him to join any MLS outfit.

A venture to La Liga with either Real Madrid or Barcelona is available at 8/1 and 10/1 respectively.

Wenger also spent seven years at Ligue 1 side Monaco prior to moving to Highbury. He’s 10/1 to return there. And it’s 12/1 for the former Gunners man to return to football management with Marseille.
