Arsene Wenger says he will be back in management at the start of 2019 – but he does not know where yet.

The 69-year-old, who ended his 22-year reign at Arsenal at the end of last season, is looking forward to returning to the game.

Asked when he would be back in management, the Frenchman told Sky Sports News: “At the beginning of the year.”

Real Madrid are currently seeking a new boss and Wenger is one of most fancied names, according to bookmakers.

However, he was unable to shed any light about his likely destination, adding: “It will seem odd to go somewhere else, but I can’t tell you (where) because I don’t know where I’ll be. I’ll be somewhere – but I don’t know where.

“I have had a good rest and watched football a lot. I have many good memories, so I miss them.”

Wenger is pleased with Arsenal’s progress this season – the Gunners have impressed after losing their first two Premier League games under Unai Emery.

He said: “When Arsenal win I am happy. I felt I worked very hard and I think I left it (the club) in good shape.

“After that, I’m a supporter like anyone else – I want them to win football games.’

“As a manager you have an influence, not only on the careers of players, the style of play and results, but on the structure and impact you give to the club and overall that is very important – that the club can always continue at a very good level.”

The Gunners are currently four points off top spot in the Premier League and, asked by talkSPORT if they could win it, Wenger replied “Why not?

“When you look at last season at home we won 15, drew two and lost two – it’s away we were not good enough.

“But overall the quality’s there. They have a chance – but at the moment we have some other teams who look very strong as well.”
