Arsene Wenger says he has been offered the France national football team manager job several times in his career.
The Frenchman has been out of work since departing Arsenal in the summer of 2018, ending his 21-year stint with the north London outfit.
He has been heavily linked with Paris Saint-Germain, with the 69-year-old coach expected to return to the game soon.
Wenger wad also been linked with the France job numerous times in recent years when he was with the Gunners. He admits that those links were real but he never considered taking it.
“Today, I miss the competition and at the same time, I want to spend time with the people I love, and my coaching career has completely absorbed me. Even when I was physically with my loved ones, I was not completely there,” Wenger told Le Parisien.
“I could have become coach of the French team. I have been offered the job several times, but I liked my job more.
“Today, Les Bleus are in very good hands, [Didier] Deschamps is doing a very good job and there is no reason for it to change.”
