Despite being linked with the England managerial job, Arsene Wenger is very much focused on Arsenal. Sam Allardyce resigned under controversial circumstances after only 67 days, as he got into a controversy regarding ‘Third Party Ownership’. Gareth Southgate has been assigned to handle the post on a temporary basis.
Wenger has traditionally been linked with the England job. His current contract expires at the end of the season.
Wenger said that he will remain loyal to Arsenal but he was shocked after Allardyce’s resignation.” “I was focused on the game tonight so I didn’t see too much about it. It was a huge surprise what happened to Sam Allardyce.”
“Who could have predicted that 48 hours ago? Nobody. The game’s always full of surprises. My priority has always been this club and until the end of this season, I’m here. I’m completely focused on that.”
Wenger recently completed his 20 years at Arsenal with a 3-0 win over Chelsea. Wenger earlier said that he turned down Paris Saint-Germain because he loves Arsenal. The French club has been very keen to take the veteran on board but he has rejected them every time.
Wenger also praised Walcott and said that the winger should be selected in the England squad. “”It’s difficult to ignore him. If you take the best English players and you see him playing the way he did tonight, it’s difficult to ignore him. I will leave that with Gareth Southgate.” Theo Walcott scored a brace as Arsenal defeated FC Basel 2-0 in Champions League
