Former Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger will speak to Bayern Munich next week about the job of his vacant manager.

Wenger, 70, said leg sports, he plans to speak with the Bayern CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge after the Bundesliga champion earlier this week had dismissed Niko Kovac.

It comes after Rummenigge said Wenger is "not considered a coach".

"We decided together to speak next week because I'm in Doha until Sunday, that's the real story," said Wenger.

"On Wednesday afternoon, Rummenigge called me in. I could not answer and politely called him back.

"He sat in his car and went to play Olympiakos, we talked for a maximum of four to five minutes and he told me they had assigned [Hans-Dieter] Swipe to be the coach – he will manage the next two games.

"He [Rummenigge] asked me if I would be interested because they are looking for a coach. I told him I had no thoughts – it takes some time to think about it. "

Wenger was in charge of Arsenal for 22 years, winning the Premier League three times and the FA Cup seven times before leaving the Gunners at the end of the 2017/18 season.
