Arsene Wenger predicts “robots” will replace managers in 20 years

Former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has predicted that "robots" will replace real-life managers in 20 years time.

Wenger finished his tenure with the north London club in May following 22 years of service with the Gunners.

Currently enjoying life outside football, Wenger has previously hinted that he would like to get back into management at the start of next year.

He may have to make the most of it. The Frenchman has openly predicted that the influence of social media, technology and the development in such fields will make it harder for "old school" managers such as himself to stay involved in the game.

Speaking in an interview with beIN Sports, Wenger said: "I've said many times, you could imagine the next chairman who says that the social networks can make a change in the second half.

"That will become more and more entrenched. It will happen. I personally, would not accept it. I'm from the old school in that respect. But we're going in that direction.

"If you imagine the power of social networks. What is even worse, it's not the majority, the minority is the most extreme, it's a bit like the problem with democracy, it's a dictatorship of the minorities.

"It's not for me, there's something I call intuition, I grew up and used my own eyes. You can as well imagine that in 20 years, a robot will sit in front of you."
