I want to help PSG overcome Champions League last 16 hurdle – Wenger

| |

Former Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger has admitted that the PSG job is still one that interests him, especially when it comes to the task of helping guide the club past their issues in the Champions League.

PSG fell to Manchester United in the last-16 of this year’s competition, squandering a first leg advantage to fall to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side.

And Wenger says that while success has eluded the club thus far, they will be able to find a way to make a mark in European competition in the future.

“I do not know if I will come to PSG one day. PSG have a great team, but they have a sort of curse in the Champions League, and they have one last hurdle to overcome, but they will do it one day,” he said.

“We must give them time, but we must recognise that this year there is an exaggerated impatience on the part of supporters.”Wenger adds, though, that there are aspects of management that he does not miss, admitting that the mental challenges remain gruelling even after all of those years of Arsenal success.

“I managed 1235 games as manager of Arsenal, and was lucky that health allowed me to miss none, but I also imposed a certain lifestyle,” he said.

“I never accepted an invitation within 48 hours of a match, for example, and never after a defeat.

“Twenty years in a row, we finished in the top four of the Premier League.

“We remember the titles, great victories, finals won or lost, but the life of a coach is much more complex.”
