England job not for me - Wenger

Arsene Wenger has insisted the England manager's job is not for him because it is 'the most difficult in international football'.

The Football Association could chose another foreign coach to replace Swede Sven-Goran Eriksson, and although Wenger would seem to fit the bill with his coaching experience, the Frenchman said: 'The job would not be for me. I love club football and I am sure I would miss it on a daily basis when I am so busy.

'With only, say, 10 games a year it would be empty. The periods of rest are much longer and more intense because you are under massive pressure.

'There is either high pressure or nothing to do at all. It is more difficult with England than with any other country. Certainly that is the case when compared to France. Here, you must look round when you go out - look to the right and the left.'

Wenger maintained the intense scrutiny of the England manager's role is such that it would perhaps dissuade some top candidates from taking it on. Dutchman Guus Hiddink has taken Australia to the World Cup finals, and the PSV Eindhoven coach is one of the favourites to be the new England boss.

Wenger said in the London Evening Standard: 'It is the job with the highest profile in international football and the most difficult. There is such a passion for football; it creates a lot of impatience.

'The country is quick to be passionate for and passionate against. The pressures of the media are more demanding.

'I have spoken with Bobby Robson, with Kevin Keegan and with Graham Taylor and you realise they have suffered enormously. Glenn Hoddle also suffered a lot.

'Still today the pain they suffered is immense.'
