Arsene Wenger would leave England if Arsenal sacked him

Despite the consistent grumblings of Piers Morgan and other equally shortsighted yet less-prominent Arsenal fans, Arsene Wenger appears to have a job for life at the Emirates.

He may not have delivered major trophies on a regular basis, but regardless of what happens between now and the end of his tenure, he will depart as the club's most successful and revolutionary manager in their illustrious history.

It is not just his three Premier League titles and six FA Cups keeping him in charge, but the significant role he has played in turning the Gunners from the "boring, boring" champions who specialised in 1-0 wins to one of the most exciting teams in the game today.

Notwithstanding his position at Arsenal, Wenger has already thought about what his next move will be if Ivan Gazidis brings the guillotine down on him.

The 66-year-old would not be short of offers if he ever found himself on the unemployment list, but he is not even sure if he would continue his managerial career. If he did, it would not be on these shores.

He told L'Equipe: "If, tomorrow morning, I am told, 'goodbye and thank you' by Arsenal, I cannot promise you that I will not look to continue to work, to live my passion. But, without a doubt, not in England.

"What is for certain is that my attachment to Arsenal will remain until the end of my days.

"I've had moments where I could have broken that [and taken other offers], but I have always refused them. I do not see how, today, I could have a managerial career elsewhere."

Next job

Paris Saint-Germain would fall over themselves trying to land one of France's biggest football personalities while Real Madrid have tried and failed to land him in the past. However, neither club would offer Wenger the time he needs to instil his philosophies.

At 66, it is unlikely Wenger would have the time to undergo anything like the project he has executed with tremendous success at Highbury and the Emirates. As a result, even if he left Arsenal tomorrow, it is hard to see him returning to the dugout at all.
