Arsene Wenger is set to make his return to managing a team for a game in the upcoming weeks against PSG. He is reported to have agreed to manage the All-Star Saudi Arabian League team. This team is set to face PSG in the Riyadh Season Cup clash. Which will be hosted in the Saudi city.
The team of All-stars would consist of selected players from the team of Al-Hilal and Al-Nassr by Arsene Wenger himself. Paris Saint-German is the team that will be facing the All-stars mostly during their Ligue 1 Winter Break.
Since leaving Arsenal in 2018, Wenger has participated in several charity events. Usually as a player, which led to the somewhat startling sight of him dribbling around Zinedine Zidane. During an exhibition game in May 2019.
In his capacity as FIFA’s president of global football development, he has lately made news by championing plans for a World Cup every two years. As part of his goal to enhance football’s focus.
But, following a Unicef game in France on Wednesday, Wenger will return to more familiar terrain in the coming weeks. With the Saudi clash, which has been confirmed by local organisers. He will captain a side that will face Didier Drogba’s Marseille Legends.
Arsene Wenger Hints at coming back full time
He suggested last month that a full-time return to management was not out of the question.
“Overall we have to accept that our days come to an end at some stage. There are always people who say, ‘You are too old’ so at the time, maybe I thought they were right, but I am in good shape and I have not completely decided not to do it anymore.”
PSG’s visit to Saudi Arabia is part of the country’s massive Riyadh Season, which begins later this month. Approximately 7,500 performances, plays, athletic matches, and other events are scheduled for the region between now and March 2022.
