Former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has been appointed into his first job since leaving the Gunners last summer.

The Frenchman has been appointed the chief of global football development at FIFA and he will be in charge of football development on the world stage.

Wenger will oversee football development in both men’s and women’s games worldwide including coaching programmes, training programmes and coach education programmes.

The former Arsenal manager has been linked with the vacant Bayern Munich job but the latest development puts an end to those rumours.

His appointment at FIFA was confirmed by the football body on Wednesday.

Arsene Wenger is not the only manager associated with the vacant Bayern Munich job.

The likes of Ex-Chelsea and Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho, Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino, Paris Saint Germain (PSG) boss Thomas Tuchel, Ex-Juventus manager Maximiliano Allegri and former Schalke 04 boss Ralf Rangnick.

Bayern Munich are on the search for a new permanent manager following the exit of Niko Kovac who was sacked last week shortly after the heavy defeat to Eintracht Frankfurt in the league.

10-man Bayern were thrashed 5-1 by last season’s Europa League semi-finalists but the Bavarian giants have since responded with two straight wins in all competitions.
