Arsene Wenger has ruled himself out of taking the Bayern Munich manager’s job, but admits that he was approached by the German club.

The former Arsenal boss has been heavily linked with the top job with the Bundesliga giants, despite being without a club since leaving the Gunners last year.

Bayern sacked manager Nico Kovac after a 5-1 battering at the hands of Eintracht Frankfurt, and the change has appeared to make an instant impact, with the Bavarians hammering Borussia Dortmund 4-0 on Saturday.

The interim manager, Hansi Flick, is now favourite to take over permanently, and Wenger has confirmed that it certainly won’t be him taking the role.

‘First of all I never was candidate,’ Wenger told beIN Sports. ‘I have been approached and I’m not in the running for the job.

‘I was approached. I’m not a candidate for the job, that is clear and definite, it doesn’t need a super referee.’

The Frenchman may not be heading to Germany, but he has never ruled out a return to management and continues to keep his options open.

When asked if he was done with management, Wenger said: ‘No, not necessarily, but at the moment.’

Flick has taken charge of two games and won them both without conceding a goal, with a 2-0 win over Olympiakos preceding the Dortmund demolition.

Bayern CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge says he will remain at the post while results keep coming.

‘We will continue working with Hansi Flick until further notice,’ said Rummenigge. ‘He said two games was his first finish line. Well he has crossed that line tonight with flying colours, and now we will calmly continue with him.’

Flick played for Bayern from 1985-90 but has not managed a side since Hoffenheim from 2000-05.
