Paul Le Guen has denied he intends to join Paris Saint Germain, but admits he is looking for a fresh challenge.
Le Guen, who resigned as coach of Lyon after presiding over a fourth successive league title, is waiting for the offers to arrive.
“I want to go on,” he declared. “Discover a new adventure.
“I want to work next year, but that will depend on the propositions I will get.
“I have the willingness to go abroad. But I don’t know where and how.
“I have no trails yet.
“Staying in France is not my priority,” he claimed. “I won’t join PSG.
“There were too many rumours. There were indeed phone calls but I won’t go there.
“I am aware I am leaving one of the best teams in Europe.
“If I am looking for a better side than l’OL, I could wait a long time.”
There have been reports linking Le Guen with a move to Arsenal. Arsene Wenger speaks highly of Le Guen and has long considered him a possible future Arsenal manager.
He could now offer Le Guen the opportunity to join his coaching staff with a view to grooming his compatriot to become his successor.
