Arsene Wenger admits he’s considering the “totally crazy challenge” that managing Real Madrid would be for him. Wenger, who admitted a few days ago that he previously turned down the chance to manage at the Santiago Bernabeu two or three times, says he will be making a decision on his future in the next couple weeks.

Wenger has now emerged as the bookmakers’ favorite to succeed Zinedine Zidane at Real Madrid, now that the three time consecutive European champions have ended their pursuit of Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino.

“It’s the question I’m going to have to answer in the next two weeks,” Wenger said in an interview with Telefoot.

“Do I still have the desire to be a coach? Yes. Do I have still have the desire to throw myself into a totally crazy challenge? I don’t know. It’s a job that requires total commitment. I need to take a step back, which is something I have never done.”

“Firstly, I’ll have to see how much I miss not being a coach, how I’ll live with the lack of adrenalin that comes with my job. Football, being able to influence a football match, experiencing some great games, having those few seconds of joy after a game when everything has gone well, the fact of sharing emotions with others, that’s what it is.”

While Wenger may or may not be the most popular choice among Madristas, he does have a proven track record of winning, he is available, and he’s a man who absolutely lives for managing.

Arsene Wenger also admitted last week that Real were one of the teams he loved as a kid.
