Could former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger coach again?

Turkish super club Fenerbahce is tracking Wenger and want the Frenchman to replace Dutchman Phillip Cocu. Fenerbahce have got off to one of their worst ever starts and currently sit 14th with seven points from 21 possible.

Cocu took over the club in the summer after winning the Eredivisie with PSV Eindhoven. Life has gone horribly wrong in Turkey for the Dutchman and pressure is mounting.

Although he hasn’t been sacked yet, he could be let go if Fenerbahce fail to win at the weekend.

Regardless of being at the top of Fenerbahce’s managerial wishlist, there is no word on whether Wenger would join the club. Wenger had been rumoured with international management jobs previously.

Wenger is currently 68-years old, but from all reports, still has the desire to manage football. Despite leaving Arsenal last season, he may head back into the cauldron of management if the right job becomes available.

The Frenchman could deem the Fenerbahce job as a no-win situation if Cocu is relieved of his duties.

Is Arsene Wenger due for a return to football management?
