Arsene Wenger has laughed off speculation surrounding the chances of him writing his own autobiography in the wake of Sir Alex Ferguson's book release, according to the Express.

Wenger, who shared a long and infamous rivalry with Ferguson until the latter retired from management at the end of last season, rather bluntly rejected the idea for the time being, stating he has other things to be doing.

Following a number of queries over comments made about Wenger in Ferguson's book- including that he was aggressive over the 'Pizzagate' scandal and that he had shown softness in recent transfer windows- the Frenchman quashed any chances of releasing an autobiography himself by answering "No!" when it was asked if he had thought about putting pen to paper for his memoirs.

He did however hint that he could be tempted to in the future, perhaps when he retires from the professional game.

"I say no at the moment – maybe one day I will be inspired,” he told reporters.

“I do not say never. I just do not feel that need at the moment.

“The past is history and history has to be written. We have a saying in France – it is not just about making history, it is writing history.

“It is good for Sir Alex to have a legacy of his career. He was a manager of Manchester United for 27 years – hardly an anonymous person.”

Wenger also pointed out that he had yet to read Sir Alex's revelations himself, but that he would do so when he had more time on his hands.

"At the moment I am a little bit busy, maybe later."
