Arsene Wenger rules himself out of the running for the England manager job


Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger believes the next person to be manage England should be an Englishman.

Sam Allardyce has left his post by mutual agreement with the Football Association at the end of last month.

Gareth Southgate has temporary taken charge with the Frenchman tipped by many to take over at the end of the season.

But the 66-year-old has again confirmed that his focus is on Arsenal.

"It is very important [that the manager is an Englishman], I have always said that," Wenger told beIN Sports.

"A country like England, with a huge football passion... and as well the structure of the national team [it] looks to me [that it] demands a guy from your own nation is the leader.

"If you think that tomorrow you are the coach of France and you play against England, when the national anthem is played of England, you cannot sing it and you cannot sing as well the anthem of the team you are leading.

"It looks to me a bit strange, that is why I like what is logical.... I think it is better [to have an Englishman]."
