Cape Town - Former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has revealed that he is likely to return to football management in January, but doesn't yet know where he is headed.

The Frenchman left the Gunners at the end of last season, after a 22-year reign, and has been without a club since.

However, the 68-year-old now seems eager to get back into coaching.

"Yes, it looks like it," Wenger told Sport Bild when asked if he will return to management.

"I believe that [I'll] start again on January 1. I don't know yet [where I'm headed]. I am rested, and I am ready to work again."

He added: "There are associations, national teams; it could be also [in] Japan," Wenger said.

"Thanks to my 22 years at Arsenal, I have big experience on different levels. There are enquiries from all over the world."

Reports have linked Wenger with a move to Bayern Munich, where Niko Kovac is enduring a difficult run of results, but he stated that the Bavarians should stick with their current manager.
