Arsene Wenger has said he has refused to return to Arsenal, because he does not want to overshadow Unai Emery.

The 69-year-old called time on his reign at the Emirates last year, but has not been back to watch a game since Emery replaced him.

Wenger admits he has been in contact with Arsenal’s hierarchy, he would be reluctant to take up a role with his former club.

“I have been in touch with some people at the club but I felt when you go like that you cannot be half in, half out.

“You let people who come in work their way.

“And I wanted to take a complete distance.

“It’s still a bit early, maybe, to go back. I haven’t been back at the club,” Wenger told beIN Sports.
