Wenger: England Job Would Be Empty
Arsene Wenger has been amongst the names of managers put forward to become the next England boss, but the Gunners manager says the position would not be to his liking.
Wenger stated that he loves the hustle and bustle of the day to day running of a club and with only 10 fixtures a year, international managment would leave him feeling 'empty'
'The job would not be for me. I love club football and I am sure I would miss it on a daily basis when I am so busy.
'With only, say, 10 games a year it would be empty. The periods of rest are much longer and more intense because you are under massive pressure. There is either high pressure or nothing to do at all. It is more difficult with England than with any other country. Certainly that is the case when compared to France. Here, you must look round when you go out - look to the right and the left.'
Many managers have suffered whilst at the helm of England's national team, and the post is world renound for being the toughest job in football.
Wenger added: 'It is the job with the highest profile in international football and the most difficult. There is such a passion for football; it creates a lot of impatience. The country is quick to be passionate for and passionate against. The pressures of the media are more demanding.
'I have spoken with Bobby Robson, with Kevin Keegan and with Graham Taylor and you realise they have suffered enormously. Glenn Hoddle also suffered a lot. Still today the pain they suffered is immense.'
