Former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has revealed what he missed about being an active manager, according to the Daily Express.
Wenger ended his 22 year stay at Arsenal in May and was subsequently replaced by Unai Emery during the summer.
Surprisingly he is yet to take up a new job since leaving the Emirates and is currently being linked to Bayern Munich, while reports claim he turned down an offer from Fulham this week.
He has admitted that he misses a number of things about being a manager. Speaking to beIN Sports, he said: “There are many things I don’t miss at all,”
“All that stuff around the game nowadays that you have to deal with.
“But of course the day, the competition, the achievement that you can do together, sharing emotions, ups and downs, you miss that.
“I was a bit lost [once I had gone] because you wander, you have time in front of you.
“There are always problems to solve, when you have sorted one out there is another coming straight away and suddenly you don’t have that in front of you.
“Also there is always a next game as a target in your life.
“I took it as a challenge. I don’t like to look back, I always like to look in front.”
Between 2006 and 2014 Wenger suffered a decade of stagnation with Arsenal, going almost a decade without trophies.
In the years that followed, he won the FA Cup and Community Shield a couple of times, however two sixth place finishes in his last two seasons didn’t go down well with the fans and after much pressure he left the club in May.
