Former Arsenal manager claims it would be a ‘dream’ to take over Manchester United.
Arsene Wenger, nicknamed Le Professeur, who managed Arsenal more than 22 years had expressed his interest in taking over the English side Manchester United.
The Frenchman has famously gone head-to-head with Sir Alex Ferguson for more than a decade and has won some battles while losing some. Witnessing the torrid form of the Red Devils, the 69-year-old has revealed it as ‘dream job’ and felt his ideas and philosophy would be enough to elevate them to the next level.
Since the famous victory against Paris Saint Germain in the Champions League last season, Solskjaer’s side has failed to win on-road and their current results have not gone in their way. They scraped out Rochdale in the league cup on penalties and picked up eight points from opening six Premier League games.
Speaking to Bein Sports, Arsene Wenger said: “Manchester United is a dream job for any manager,”
“At least, any manager with courage and confidence. Yes, they need – in my opinion – four first-team players. But around those players, I see a squad that is capable of challenging.
“They aren’t as far away as people think.
“The team have no pattern of play, no pattern of pressing. There is a team there, but it needs to be coached and developed. Like I said, four players and they can be challengers. For everything.
“Like I said, Manchester United is a dream job. For any coach. I have confidence, I have courage… and you’re right, I have ideas.”
Arsene Wenger has been without a job since stepping down as Arsenal manager in 2018. The Frenchman is linked with a post occupying with the FIFA, but there are no official news about it. He continues to provide insights about football as a pundit these days.
