Arsene Wenger will return to management to take charge of a Saudi Arabian super-team, just days after the country’s Public Investment Fund bought Newcastle United.
Former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is set to return to management in January for a one off match between Paris Saint-Germain and Saudi Arabia’s all-stars.
The Riyadh Season Cup is up for grabs when the two sides clash and Wenger will be in charge of the team made up of Al-Hilal and Al-Nassr stars.
It marks the first time that Wenger will step into the dugout since leaving his role as Arsenal manager in 2018. In the three years since, he has taken up a role as FIFA’s chief of global football development.
Most notably, the 71-year-old has been at the forefront of a push to hold the World Cup every two years rather than every four as is currently traditional.
