Wenger: I’ll never manage Real Madrid

Arsene Wenger

Arsene Wenger has ruled out joining Real Madrid as their new manager.

The Frenchman also revealed that he rejected Real “more than once” during this 22-year stint with Arsenal.

“I turned Madrid down more than once but now I must say it’s over for me,” he said.

“I feel if you ask any manger in the world ‘Are you interested?’ and everybody would say ‘Yes’. It’s the biggest club in the world.”

Wenger added that he did not reject staying in north London.

“We live always to our values. It was in the middle of a process.

“We rebuilt the stadium, we had to pay it back, I guaranteed I would stay and I’m quite happy with my decision.”
