The Gunners legend, despite his ties to Manchester City, has been mentioned as replacement for Wenger at his old club.
But he told L'Equipe: "Position myself to replace Arsène Wenger? For me, it's very difficult, sincerely. It's very difficult because of the personal relationships I have with Arsène.
"I find that the way people position themselves is very out of place...
"Train Arsenal? Say one day, it might interest me. But one day. I cannot say anything more, because there is nothing to say and I do not want to hurt Arsène, whom I adore and for whom I have a lot of respect."
