Wenger describes Real Madrid job as 'interesting'
Monday 18 May 2009
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has said that coaching Real Madrid would be "obviously interesting for any coach."
Florentino Perez announced his candidacy last week to become Madrid president for a second time in the club's elections in the offseason. He reportedly tried to sign Wenger during his first stint and has been linked again with the Arsenal manager.
"With Perez, the project will be obviously interesting for any coach," Wenger told French TV on Sunday. Asked whether he would be tempted, he replied: "I'm a coach."
Wenger, who says he will stay at Arsenal at least until his contract expires in 2011, wouldn't reveal if he'd been in contact with Perez.
"Allow me to remain discreet on that matter," Wenger said.
