Former manager of Arsenal, Arsene Wenger has stated that he would return to manage a club in 2019, but  has ruled out the possibility of returning to England  as a manager.

He said the best way was to stay away from England when he returns to manage a club.

"I said many times maybe the best way is not to be in England because I spent so much time at the same club” Wenger told Sky Sports News at Wembley

The 69-year-old has been out of work since leaving Arsenal in the summer after 22 years at the club, but remains ready to take up a new challenge, starting in January.

Speaking at the launch of 'The Twinning Project' to Sky Sports News at Wembley, he  was emphatic of his return  to football early next year, saying: "Certainly at the beginning of 2019."At the moment I'm having a good rest and I watch football a lot.

"I'm here at Wembley where I played many games and have good memories, and of course you miss that.

 On where he intended to be as manager, he said he could not tell ."At the moment, I cannot tell you about my future because I don't know."I don't know where I will be. I will be somewhere but I don't know where."

Wenger  is said to be a target for French champions PSG who reportedly want him to join the club as director of football to work alongside head coach Thomas Tuchel.

Asked whether his next job would be a club or country position, Wenger replied: "I don't know, I haven't decided yet."
