Bayern turn down Wenger for vacant manager's post

Arsene Wenger managed Arsenal for 22 years

Arsenal's manager Arsene Wenger is pictured prior to the UEFA Europa League football between Belgrade (Crvena zvezda) and Arsenal, on October 19, 2017 in Belgrade.

Arsene Wenger has shut down reports Bayern Munich are no longer considering him as their next manager, insisting he will hold talks with the club next week.

Bayern dismissed Niko Kovac on Sunday after a string of bad results and uneasy mix of stagnation on the pitch and conflicts off it. Kovac took over at Bayern in 2018 after a spell in charge of Eintracht Frankfurt.

Wenger had reached out to Bayern CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge on Wednesday to discuss the position.

However, Wenger, 70, rejected those version of events and criticised Bayern for leaking "rumours from everywhere".

"I could not answer at that moment and out of politeness I called him back".

'We discussed it for four to five minutes maximum, and he told me they had assigned Flick to be the coach, he will manage the two next games, because they will play Dortmund tomorrow.

Trump insists he did nothing wrong. "But this is the man who said there was no quid pro quo, and he still said that". The familiar dustup between the president and the news outlet comes less than a week before the U.S.

When asked about other candidates on Tuesday, Bayern sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic said: "I won't talk about any names".

Speaking to BeIN Sports on Friday, Wenger revealed he has been contacted by Bayern Munich.

'This is the true story.

"I wish well to Bayern, which is actually at a turning point because [Uli] Hoeness, a key man for this club, is leaving".

Between them, Hoeness and Rummenigge have helped grow Bayern into one of the most successful clubs in Europe.

However they have been publicly rebuffed by both Paris Saint-Germain boss Thomas Tuchel and Ajax's Erik ten Hag, who said on Monday he would be staying with the Dutch champions until at least the end of the season.
