Paris Saint-Germain President Nasser Al-Khelaifi has said that former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger will not become the club’s new sporting director.


Wenger has been without a job since stepping down as Arsenal boss at the end of last season after 22 years in charge of the Premier League side.
The 68-year-old has stated that he has no plans to retire and his been linked with a number of roles.
Reports earlier this week suggested Wenger had met with PSG chief Al-Khelaifi to discuss a possible move to the Parc Des Princes.
Wenger has been touted as a possible replacement for Antero Henrique, who has been the Ligue 1 side’s sporting director since 2017.
Henrique has often had a difficult relationship with head coach Thomas Tuchel, with the German openly critical of the club’s transfer activity during the January window.
That led to speculation Henrique could be replaced, with Wenger in contention.
However, Al-Khelaifi insists reports of an imminent move for the Frenchman are wide of the mark.
“I have very good relations with Arsene,” he told Le Parisien.
“I’m close to him and I’ve known him for a long time. He is a wonderful manager and coach. He has a very sharp and very complete knowledge of football.
“But we have a sports director, Antero Henrique, in whom I have great confidence.
“I hear the media constantly saythat Arsene will come to take this job. It’s too much. Let us work, please.”Antero does a very good job. He will continue with us. He stays there.”
Wenger was recognised at the Laureus World Sports Awards inMonacothis week with the Lifetime Achievement Award.
