Arsene Wenger’s long-term future with Arsenal is still uncertain but if he were to leave in the summer he’s seemingly ruled himself out of contention to become the next England boss.

Previously Wenger wouldn’t rule out becoming England boss and said he wouldn’t be deciding his Arsenal future until the end of the current season but has reiterated his views the national side should be under an Englishman with his thoughts on beIN Sports appearing to rule him out.

‘There has been no contact. There is nothing really to add. Personally I want England to do well. It is very important [that the manager is an Englishman], I have always said that.’

Gareth Southgate is filling the void at the moment with it thought the FA could wait until next summer to lure Wenger into the post, not that Arsenal legend Robert Pires believes he could take the job as he would miss the day-to-day involvement in the game.

I’ve still no idea if Wenger will extend his Arsenal stay but am less convinced England will be his next stop if he doesn’t!
