Arsene Wenger is set to hold talks with Bayern Munich next week over their vacant managerial role the former Arsenal manager has confirmed.
Reports earlier this week suggested Wenger- who has been out of work since leaving Arsenal in 2018-had been ruled out of the role with the Bundesliga giants.
But Wenger while speaking with beIN sports on Wednesday said: "On Wednesday afternoon, Rumenigge called me. I could not answer at that moment and, by politeness, I called him back.
"He was in his car going to the game against Olympiacos. We talked for four to five minutes maximum and he told me they had assigned Flick to be the coach and he will manage the next two games because they play Dortmund tomorrow.
Needed Some Time
"He asked me if I would be interested because they are looking for a coach. I told him I didn't have any thoughts about it. It needs some time to have a think about it. We decided together we will talk next week because I am in Doha until Tuesday night. This is the true story."
Bayern is searching for a new manager after sacking Niko Kovac following a poor start to the season that has seen them win just five of their first ten Bundesliga games.
