Arsene Wenger believes Zinedine Zidane is in a very difficult position and advised him to take a long-term project in England if he truly wants to test himself.
Zidane – a World Cup and Champions League winner in his playing days – has been heavily linked with a move to Manchester United, with Jose Mourinho struggling at the helm this season and former Arsenal boss Wenger thinks he would take a job at a club who is looking to build a project for the future.
Wenger told BeIn Sports: Hes in a very difficult position because he has been in the biggest club in the world and he can only go to the second biggest club now of the world.
So that means he is in front of something where I go for a long-term project and I go to a different aspect of my job and want to be involved in speeding up a club or I go straight away again to a team who can compete and win the Champions League again and that will not be easy personally.
In his case, I would go for more a different aspect of my job.
But should Zidane head to England?
Why not? If you want to work at the top it has to be England nowadays, Wenger added.
But theres many uncertainties now with Brexit, the consequences of Brexit and will the Premier League continue to dominate economically the football world. That answer we will know that very soon. At the moment, England is the only country where six to seven teams can fight for the championship.
In all the other countries basically you can say in December who will win the championship. There are some countries, like France, where you can say it in September.
