Wenger won three Premier League titles with Arsenal, but a large section of Gunners supporters wanted him out towards the end of his reign.

He told beIN Sports: “I have been in touch with some people at the club but I felt when you go like that you cannot be half in, half out.

“You let people who come in work their way. And I wanted to take a complete distance.

“It’s still a bit early, maybe, to go back. I haven’t been back at the club.”

Wenger has reportedly rejected numerous offers to return to management, including a chance to boss Fulham last season.

He added: “I was tempted and as well a little bit afraid to dive back into it straight away.

“I was realising that I lived like somebody in a coma for 35 years who woke up and saw something different in life than just my club, my game and my work.

“So I thought maybe I have to analyse that and take a little bit longer distance.”
