Despite being linked with several sensational returns, Wenger maintains that the English Premier League is not in his cards because he has some degree of loyalty to the Gunners.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Wenger ruled out any grand return to the EPL because he was still a huge Arsenal fan.

He however declined to name the clubs interested in him for ethical reasons.

"I decided to move out of the Premier League because I am too linked with Arsenal. I had opportunities to work in England but I turned them down. I don't want to tell you [which clubs] because there are people in charge and it would unfair to them." He said.

In recent months, Wenger has been appearing as a pundit in renowned football outlets and his match analysis has been highly praised by fans who believe he is one of the few managers who truly have an eye for the game.

During his time with the Gunners, he won three Premier League titles, including one during the 2003/2004 season where he remarkably went on an unbeaten streak with a team which came to be known as The invincibles.
