Wenger asks Zidane to consider a job in the Premiership
Arsene Wenger has told Zinedine Zidane that ‘if you want to work at the top’ then he should take a job in the Premier League next season.
The former Real Madrid boss is still unemployed after walking away from the Bernabeu following their Champions League victory over Liverpool in May.
Zidane has been heavily linked with the Manchester United post as pressure continues to build on Jose Mourinho. Wenger, who left Arsenal in the summer after 22 years, has told his fellow Frenchman that England should be his next destination.
Wenger told beIN Sports: ‘Yes, why not? If you want to work at the top, it has to be England nowadays.
‘But there are many uncertainties with Brexit and the uncertainty: will the Premier League continue to dominate financially? We’ll know soon.
‘England is the only country with six clubs that can fight for the championship.
‘In all the other countries basically you can say in December who will win the championship and there are some countries, like France, where you can say it in September.’
Wenger admits that Zidane has already experienced the pinnacle of management and that his next job may be something of a ‘long-term project’.
‘He’s in a very difficult position, he’s been in the biggest club in the world, and he can only go to the second biggest club in the world,’ Wenger added.
‘That means he is in front of something, or I go for a long-term project and I go to a different aspect of my job, and I want to be involved in building up a club.
‘Or I go straight away again to a team that can compete, that can win the Champions League again. That won’t be easy, personally.
‘In his case, I would go for a different aspect of my job.’
