Arsene Wenger admits he would be open to becoming England manager “one day”

Sam Allardyce was forced out the door just 67 days in-charge after he was secretly filmed by undercover reporters from The Telegraph allegedly telling them how to “get around” the FA’s ban on third-party ownership of players.
Wenger, whose current contract at Arsenal expires at the end of the season, was linked with the England vacancy following Roy Hodgson ‘s resignation after Euro 2016.

When asked if he could take the job at some point, Wenger told reporters: “Why not? My priority is to do well here though. This has always been my club, but one day if I am free, why not, but at the moment I was focused on my job.”

The Frenchman, who is celebrating 20 years in charge of the Gunners, added that he will make a decision about his future next summer.

“What influences me the most is the fact that I feel I do well and I can move this team forward,” said Wenger.
