Former Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has responded to reports that he is in discussion with Bundesliga side Bayern Munich to become the new manager.
Wenger denied the reports that he is in talks with Munich but avoided removing himself from the running. The Bundesliga giants sacked Niko Kovac on Sunday after the club was thrashed 5-1 by Eintracht Frankfurt. Wenger, who has been without a club since leaving Arsenal at the end of the 2017/18 campaign, was providing analysis for beIN Sports on Wednesday when he was asked about the speculations.
"I never refuse to talk to Bayern Munich because I know these people who lead the club for 30 years. I was nearly going to Bayern a long, long time ago. At the moment, I haven't talked to them at all," he revealed.
"We have not talked to each other and I don't know [if we will]," he added.
The Frenchman won three Premier Leagues and seven FA Cups during his 22-year spell in north London.
