Arsene Wenger to take up FIFA job

The Frenchman, who turns 70 next month, will join FIFA in a technical role. The role has not yet been completely defined, but it will be a very important one where his voice will be heard and opinions respected.

While Wenger is excited to help football improve through FIFA, sources have told ESPN FC his priority remains finding a job in club football soon.

As much as he was ready for the challenge at FIFA, he is also eager to get back to full management, whether at a club or a national team.

Wenger left Arsenal in the summer of 2018 after 22 years at the club. Since then, he has had opportunities to get back in the game but none that fully satisfied him.

While waiting for the right job, he has worked as a pundit on television. He has been travelling a lot while still living in London.

Wenger still believes that he can improve any team and win trophies in any league. He has watched a lot of matches and met a lot of players, managers and ex-players in the last two years.
