Arsene Wenger’s next job: As per Google, Arsene Wenger is the new Thailand national team’s coach.
Arsene Wenger resigned as Arsenal’s manager last season. The manager took over the managerial role at the club in 1996, and led the Gunners to three Premier League titles, and various domestic honours throughout his tenure.
Ever since the beginning of the new season, the speculations surrounding Arsene Wenger’s next job have increased.
While it was reported that Wenger could reunite with Ivan Gazidis in Milan, there were also various reports of the Frenchman taking over an international role in Asia.
The latter, it seems, could turn out to be true as a Google search has now stated that Wenger has been appointed the new Thailand national team’s coach.
Arsene Wenger’s next job revealed?
The Frenchman has not expressed an immediate desire to return to football management in any of his interviews since resignation as Arsenal’s manager.
However, a Google search has now revealed that Thailand’s national team has appointed Arsene Wenger on a two-year contract!
How Arsene Wenger managed to get in top4 with lesser quality team than the current team is baffling. Unbelievable management!! @Arsenal

Thailand is currently participating in the AFC Asian Cup, where they’re grouped with the host nation UAE, Bahrain and India.
Incredibly, Thailand sacked their coach Milovan Rajevac after their first game against India in the tournament, which resulted in a 4-1 loss.
The team beat Bahrain in their second group game under caretaker manager Sirisak Yodyadthai. However, The Thailand FA is yet to make a confirmation over a permanent manager.
Thailand plays their final group game of the tournament against UAE later tonight. Due to their loss against India in the first group game, their qualification scenario remains complex.
Remember when we all thought that the only reason we didn’t spend big money on signings was because Arsène Wenger was stingy? Good times.

Pellegrini on Emery: “Its not easy to replace Arsene Wenger after so many years. Its not easy to make a judgement on Unai & #Arsenal halfway through the season. Arsene always played in the Champions League so the demands at Arsenal are high & so far, Unai is working very well” pic.twitter.com/6JcERF2Wev

Arsène Wenger took the brunt of everyone’s frustration for years knowing full well it wasn’t his fault, he stood up & took the flack in press conferences & interviews when he could have easily shone a light on his higher ups & blamed them. A lot of people owe him an apology. https://t.co/Foz81SuiHO

While a win would strengthen their chances to book a place in the round-of-16 (depending upon the result of the game between India and Bahrain), a draw or a loss could hamper their campaign.
As bizarre as it could get, a probable move for Wenger to an Asian side could not entirely be ruled out, given he spent a year in Japan before taking over as the boss at Arsenal.
