Former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has ruled himself out of the running for the vacant Newcastle United job.

The experienced French manager distanced himself from replacing Rafael Benitez at Newcastle United in a chat with France 24.

He went on to say that a return to the Premier League is possible before adding that it would be when he’s ready.

Arsene Wenger was previously linked with the Real Madrid job before Zinedine Zidane returned to take the job in March having resigned from the post eight months earlier.

Fulham also tried to tempt the former AS Monaco man to return to management but the London club was unsuccessful in that regard.

Arsene Wenger has not returned to management since he left Arsenal last summer.

The French tactician resigned from his post as the Arsenal manager last summer despite the fact that he had one year left on his then contract with the Gunners.

He spent 22 years in North London as the Arsenal manager and also led the Gunners to three Premier League titles and seven FA Cup titles.

His greatest achievement as an Arsenal manager came during the 2003/04 season when his team went through the 2003/04 Premier League campaign without a single defeat.
