Former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has insisted that he is not a candidate to become the club’s next president.
The Premier League club is looking for a replacement after Sir Chips Keswick announced his decision to step down.
Sir Chips spent 15 years on the board and seven years as president before deciding to leave.
Leave Stan Kroenke, Josh Kroenke, Lord Harris and Ken Friar on board.
Former Gunners defender Martin Keown is one of those who asked the club to entrust him with the role.
But speaking with beIN Sports, Wenger said, “The candidate claims not to be a candidate.”
The Frenchman is currently head of FIFA’s world football development, having spent 22 years as manager of Arsenal.
