Arsene Wenger took charge of the Gunners on 22 September 1996 and finally said goodbye at the end of the 2017-18 season. The French tactician was responsible for getting Arsenal back on top, notably guiding the Gunners to the 2003-04 FA Premier League title undefeated.

'The Invincibles' were first team ever to do so in a 38-game league season but it remained a high point many years later. Wenger was under constant speculation during his final years in charge and nothing has changed. 

Bookmaker Ladbrokes have been offering odds on his next destination since he stepped aside. France, Paris Saint-Germain, a Chinese Club, Real Madrid, an MLS Club and England have all emerged as possible destinations for the 69-year-old.

The Frenchman was the longest-serving manager in Arsenals history and one of the most successful. Wenger went desperately close to winning the UEFA Champions League but lost 2-1 to Barcelona after playing most of the match with 10 men.

Arsene Wenger was born on 22 October 1949 in Strasbourg, France. Had an uneventful playing career at AS Mutzig, Mulhouse, Vauban Strasbourg and RC Strasbourg Alsace before beginning his managerial career with Racing Strasbourg U19 in 1981.

A brief assistant manager position at AS Cannes was followed by head coach positions at AS Nancy-Lorraine, AS Monaco, Nagoya Grampus and Arsenal FC. Wenger won titles in three countries and was names World Manager of the Year in 1998.

Arsene Wenger Next Job Betting Odds

France are the favourites at this stage with Wenger tipped to replace Didier Deschamps. Deschamps has done a great job in charge, winning the 2018 FIFA World Cup and might not be going anywhere soon. 

PSG are another possible destination as they desperately try to win the UEFA Champions League.China and MLS are other possible leagues where Wenger could get back into work while La Liga giants Real Madrid and Barcelona are also in the mix. 

French clubs Monaco and Marseille are other clubs linked with Wenger as is the England national team.

Arsene Wenger has a tremendous amount of knowledge but there is some concern that his methods may have been left behind. Younger managers like Pep Guardiola and Jurgen Klopp are leading the way and Wenger might be perceived as yesterday’s man.

It’s not unreasonable that Arsene Wenger could join a big club as a technical or sporting director above a head coach. I think Wenger will hold out for an international team that requires less work and stress.

There will be many nations in need of an experienced manager before the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar. Arsene Wenger might be one of the top candidates.
