Arsene Wenger has revealed that he would like to manage at football's showpiece event when he finally call time on his tenure at Arsenal.

The Gunners boss has consistently been linked with the England hotseat in recent times. The FA reportedly wanted him to succeed Roy Hodgson after he resigned in the wake of the Three Lion's Euro 2016 failure, and also courted him before Gareth Southgate was named as the permanent successor to Sam Allardyce.

When asked if he sees himself managing a national team at the World Cup, Wenger told 'beIn Sports': 'Maybe yes I will do it at some stage but until now I like to be involved every day in the life of a club because the real test is there.

'Four or five weeks is a different experience, it's more concentrated but I believe the real experience of managing a team is on a daily basis.

'But I will not always have the physical strength to do that so maybe I will move into (international coaching).'

The Frenchman has never shied away from the possibility of managing England, claiming last year: 'One day, if I'm free, why not?'

Finally, on the prospect of being in the dugout at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, he said: 'Maybe, you never know!'
