Arsene Wenger says he will be back in management at the start of 2019 - but he does not know where yet.

The 69-year old, who ended his 22-year reign at Arsenal at the end of last season, is looking forward to returning to the game.

Asked when he would be back in management, the Frenchman said: "At the beginning of the year."

Real Madrid are currently seeking a new boss and Wenger is one of the most fancied names according to bookmakers.

However, he was unable to shed any light about his likely destination, adding: "It will seem odd to go somewhere else, but I can't tell you (where) because I don't know where I'll be."

Wenger is pleased with Arsenal's progress this season - the Gunners have impressed after losing their first two Premier League games under Unai Emery.

He said: "When Arsenal win I am happy. I felt I worked very hard and I think I left it (the club) in good shape.
