French TV station drops Wenger as commentator.
After 10 years as a commentator for France’s biggest commercial TV station TF1, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has been dropped, reports the Guardian.
Wenger has commentated on matches involving the national team for the past decade and is thought to be greatly surprised at not having his contract renewed.
It took effect immediately and the 64-year-old was not present at the Stade de France for Les Bleus’ international friendly with Spain on Thursday.
Wenger has been a familiar face on TF1 and was present at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil and has also commentated regularly on Champions League games over the years.
There is a chance a number of other media outlets will be looking to snap up the Frenchman now themselves, with several British broadcasters possibly mulling over the idea of signing the Gunners boss.
Chelsea’s Jose Mourinho is a pundit for BT Sport and new QPR coach Glenn Hoddle is contracted to Sky Sports.
It may be that Wenger chooses to concentrate on matters at the Emirates Stadium though, with the North London outfit battling on four fronts once again and looking to build on their FA Cup success of 2013/14.
