Cape Town - Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger admits he may look towards managing an international team after his career at the Emirates Stadium comes to an end.

Wenger's current contract with the north London club expires in 2019, at which point he will have been in charge for 23 years, but he probably won't retire from football at that stage.

The Frenchman has stated that he remains passionate about football and would consider going into international management once his Gunners days are over.

"Maybe, yes, I will do it at some stage but until now I like to be involved every day in the life of a club because the real test is there," he told beIN Sports, when asked if he would consider an international role.

"Four or five weeks is a different experience, it's more concentrated, but I believe the real experience of managing a team is on a daily basis.

"But I will not always have the physical strength to do that so maybe I will move into (international coaching). It's a fact my life is linked with football, in what way will be linked to my physical state.

"I will (always) be in football. I don't know (if) as a director, as a manager - as long as possible as a manager. But one day that will stop. But I will stay in football, of course."
