Arsene Wenger says he will decide in the next two weeks whether he wants to return to football management for “another crazy challenge”.
The Frenchman left Arsenal after 22 years in charge last month.
Wenger is among the favourites to succeed Zinedine Zidane as Real Madrid manager, following the 45-year-old’s shock resignation last week.
However, Wenger admits he is unsure whether he still has the energy and passion required for football management.
“Do I still have the desire to be a coach? It’s the question I’m going to have to answer in the next two weeks,” he said on Telefoot.
“Do I still have the desire to be a coach? Yes. Do I have the desire to throw myself into another crazy challenge? I don’t know. It’s a job that requires total commitment.
“I must give myself a little distance, which is something I’ve never done. I’ll have to see how much I miss it.”
