Arsene Wenger ‘Ready to Work Again,’ Eyeing January Return to Management

Former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has confirmed he is ready to get to work again and expects to land his next job in January.

Speaking to Sport Bild (h/t ESPN FC’s Mattias Karen), the Frenchman didn’t rule out a venture into international management:

“Yes, it looks like it. I believe that [I’ll] start again on Jan. 1. I don’t know yet [where I’m headed]. I am rested, and I am ready to work again.

“There are associations, national teams; it could be also [in] Japan. Thanks to my 22 years at Arsenal, I have big experience on different levels. There are enquiries from all over the world.”

Wenger also expressed his support for Bayern Munich manager Niko Kovac, saying the Bavarians should not sack him.
