Ex-Arsenal boss Wenger inviting J-League offers

Former Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is considering a return to Japan to resume his coaching career.

Wenger has made it clear that he wants to stay in football. There will be numerous offers for him to take over at clubs in Europe and in the United States.

But Wenger also has the option of working in Japan. Wenger worked in the Far East for one season during 1995-96.

He was at Nagoya Grampus Eight where he won the Emperor's Cup and the Japanese Super Cup during his stay.

The Daily Mail says Wenger is still in high esteem in Japan and the profile of the J-League was raised last week when Vissel Kobe signed Spain World Cup and European Championship winner Andres Iniesta from Barcelona.

If the right offer comes from Japan, Wenger will give it serious thought.
