Arsene Wenger Reveals Why He Rejected Man Utd Job
Legendary Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger, has claimed Manchester United were one of the clubs he turned down.
Wenger revealed he questioned whether he made the right decision to sign a three-year extension when the club’s new owner, Stan Kroenke, bought a majority share in the club.
“I still today wonder if I did the right thing, because life was never exactly the same after [Dein’s departure].
“I thought I had to go to the end of this project, but I could’ve gone to the French national team, England national team twice or three times. I could’ve gone to Real Madrid twice, Juventus, Paris Saint-Germain, even to Manchester United.
“My fatal flaw is I loved too much where I am… where I was.”
Wenger eventually left Arsenal in 2018 after 22 years at the helm.
Since his exit, the Gunners finished sixth in the 2018/2019 season under his replacement, Unai Emery, and eighth twice in 2019/2020 and 2020/2021 with current manager Mikel Arteta.
