FA chief executive Martin Glenn recently called Arsenal FC boss Arsene Wenger a suitable successor to former tainted England manager Sam Allardyce. Wenger hasn't been contacted yet by the Football Association for the England job, but seems like that's the last thing on the Frenchman's mind.  

Wenger, who has completed 20 years with the London club, isn't realy interested in taking up the role. He further said that the job of the England manager must be given to an Englishman.

In an interview, he said, "A country like England has a huge football passion...It looks to me that it demands a guy from the same nation as leader."
