Former Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is returning to football after he agreed to become Fifa's new chief of global football development.

The move ends speculation linking the Frenchman, 70, with a return to management as Bayern Munich boss.

Wenger left the Gunners in May 2018, after 22 years in charge, three Premier League titles and seven FA Cups.

"I very much look forward to taking on this extremely important challenge," Wenger said.

His new role will help to develop men's and women's football, as well as technical aspects of the sport.

He will now be a member of the technical panel of the International Football Association Board, and chairman of Fifa's technical study group.

This is a good appointment. He's going to make a good CGFD. I think coming back to manage would have been nice to see one last time but with this move its never happening now.

I would have liked him to take another job as manager to see if he has still got it. But at his age this is a wise decision.

I actually love Wenger. Reckon he'll bring a lot to this role if all the corrupt bureaucrats don't get in his way too much.
