Former Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger, is set for a return to football, as a technical director for FIFA, the UK Mirror reports.
Wenger has told his friends, that he is ready to take up the post, after deciding not to return to club management.
The 69-year-old could be confirmed in the role as early as this month.
In a recent interview with BeIN Sports, the Frenchman admitted that he still harbours an ambition of managing a team at the next World Cup.
“I could see myself working for a team.
“I must say I always wanted to go to the World Cup because I felt it is the job of a manager to be where the best football players in the world play football.
“Hopefully, you will see me, touch wood in Qatar in three years’ time,” Wenger said.
