Arsenal and Manchester United hate each other. They despise each other just like Arsenal and Tottenham or Manchester United and Liverpool. They just can't stand the other.

Both clubs ruled English soccer during the early 2000s and there's always been a lot of bad blood between their players, fans, and even media pundits, that's not a secret.

However, it now looks like, deep down, a former Arsenal glory would cherish the opportunity of taking Manchester United back to the top of the world.

Shockingly, former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger claimed that coaching Manchester United would be a 'dream job' for any manager while working as a soccer Analyst for beIN Sports:

"Manchester United is a dream job for any manager. At least, any manager with courage and confidence.Yes, they need - in my opinion - four first-team players. But around those players, I see a squad that is capable of challenging. They aren't as far away as people think. The team have no pattern of play, no pattern of pressing. There is a team there, but it needs to be coached and developed. Like I said, four players and they can be challengers. For everything," Wenger claimed, as quoted by Givemesport.

But things didn't stop there, as the Frenchman was asked if he would like to step up and replace Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as The Red Devils' tactician, and he didn't hesitate to wink at Manchester United and show his availability to go back to the coaching seat:

"Manchester United is a dream job. For any coach. I have confidence, I have courage and you're right, I have ideas," Wenger concluded.

Wenger is Arsenal's winningest manager but it look like his idea had become obsolete and the team had already reached their ceiling, so it'll be interesting to see if he gets another shot at a coaching job, especially for one of their lifelong rivals.
