Arsene Wenger revealed he will talk to Bayern Munich chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge about the vacant job next week

ARSENE WENGER has revealed he is STILL in the running for the vacant Bayern Munich job - and will talk to the club early next week.

The Arsenal icon, 70, was no longer believed to be in consideration to replace Niko Kovac, who was sacked on Tuesday.

But the Frenchman told beIN Sports that he is set for a longer conversation with Bayern chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge.

Wenger, who spent 22 years in charge at Arsenal, said: "On Wednesday afternoon, Rummenigge called me.

"I could not answer at that moment and out of politeness I called him back. He was driving to the Olympiacos game.

"We talked for four to five minutes maximum and he told me that they've signed [Hans-Dieter] Flik to be the coach.

"He will manage the next two games, because they play Borussia Dortmund [on Saturday].

"He asked me if I'd be interested because they are looking for a coach, I told him I didn't have any thoughts about it. It needs some time to think about."

"We decided together we will talk next week, because I'm in Doha until Sunday night. This is the true story."

Wenger spent 22 years in north London, winning three Premier League titles and the FA Cup seven times - the most in the competition's history.
