 Arsene Wenger has revealed he might consider a comeback after making a statement about his love for football.

The rivalry between Sir Alex and Wenger 

The Frenchman is Arsenal’s longest-serving manager, and by far their most successful manager after 22 years with the Gunners. Wenger decided to leave Arsenal in 2018 after winning three Premier Leagues and seven FA Cups.

It has been almost 40 years since Wenger first took charge, when he took charge of French side Nancy in 1984. He then went on to manage Monaco and Japanese side Nagoya Grampus Eight before moving to Arsenal in 1996.

 Wenger has a passion for football.

Wenger has made more than 1,700 professional matches, but recently, Wenger hinted that the number could be increased. The former Arsenal manager told beIN Sports: “I’ve spent 40 seasons in the business and if I followed my advice, I would still do this job.”

“You know, I can contribute in another way. I still miss it. I still miss the intensity of football. And overall, I’m still vulnerable. I’m like a drug addict. I think I can also contribute in another way.”

Wenger is clearly interested in football as he is currently FIFA’s Director of Global Football Development, although there have been many rumors that he will return to the bench.
