Wenger: I couldn't accept PSG offer as I was stuck at Arsenal

Former Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has spoken of his contact with PSG during his time in London.

Wenger is close to PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi and has long been linked with the manager's job - and also the presidency.

He told Canal Football Club: "Why didn't I join PSG? Because at the time I was stuck at Arsenal and I wanted to complete my mission.

"Now they have taken another direction..."

Wenger is now employed by FIFA's rules committee.
