Arsene Wenger resigned from being the Gunners manager last season after spending 22 years at the helm of affairs.
It’s no surprise that many clubs were interested in the Frenchman’s service, he has seen it all when it comes to managing a big club.
Though many would want to fault his transfer policy — not spending big on top players, he is one of the best coaches who has so much trust in young talents.
He has also helped develop youngsters into world-class that top clubs compete for their signatures.
Having seen his impressive records at the Emirates Stadium, Sydney FC made move for his signature this summer, hoping to begin their club’s transformation with the Frenchman.
According to Fox Sports reporter Daniel Garb, the Sky Blues offered the 68-year-old a mouthwatering contract during the off-season period as they want him as a replacement for Graham Arnold, who was sacked by the club’s hierarchy following a poor run of results.
Daniel Garb further revealed that Wenger wasn’t prepared to return to active football yet, so, the former Nagoya Grampus manager turned down the offer so as to continue his well-deserved rest.
Having failed to capture the Frenchman, the Asian club appoint former assistant manager Steve Corica to take over the post from Graham for the rest of the current campaign.
As for Wenger, the former Arsenal manager is still enjoying his break from football, though, many offers are currently on his table to choose from once he is ready to return back to the field.
