Arsene Wenger has confirmed that he will take a short break from managerial duties after leaving Arsenal before deciding on his next move.
The 68-year-old manager made a final trip to Old Trafford to take on Manchester United in the Premier League at the weekend.
It has been reported that Arsenal had considered offering Wenger a role behind the scenes at the Emirates, while PSG are keen for him to be their new sporting director.
But Wenger himself still believes he has something to offer in management, and the Frenchman said he would take a break and think about what he wants to do next.
Speaking to French TV station SFR after Arsenal 2-1 loss to United, Wenger said, “I have genuinely decided to take a short break in order to figure out where I go from here. It’s a complete unknown.”
Wenger also admitted he was still unsure about his next move though played down the possibility of remaining in the Premier League.
Asked if he expected to share technical area with the United boss again, Wenger said, “I don’t know, honestly.
“First of all he [Mourinho] will be at Manchester United next year certainly and I don’t know where I will be. I have worked at a top level for 35 years without any interruption and I think I am the only one in the world who has done that.
“So at the moment I am a bit in unknown territory.
“I don’t know where I will go from here. Will I take a break? So I would be surprised if I meet him next year.”
