ARSENE WENGER admits he is 'scared of god' having only focused on football throughout his entire life.
The 70-year-old has taken up a role as the Head of Global Football at Fifa following his time away from the touchline.
After retiring as a player in 1981, Wenger took up his first managerial role at Nancy before stints at Monaco and Japanese side Nagoya Grampus Eight.
In 1996 he was famously appointed Arsenal manager where he became the longest serving and most successful in the club's history.
Wenger eventually left in 2018 but has remained in the game.

He once revealed how he was 'scared of the day' he retired and that football was an 'addiction' to him.
And in a deeper conversation, Wenger opened up on life after death claiming he feels his life could be 'meaningless.'
Reported by the Guardian, he said: "Sometimes I feel I’m scared for having only done football in my life.
"So, when I speak to God, it’s a bit pretentious.
"It’s just that if God exists and they have a test to see if you go to hell or to heaven, it might look ridiculous to only have dedicated your life to winning football games.
"And that’s why I came up with that idea. I feel sometimes it could feel meaningless that you dedicated your whole life to that.”
Wenger also declared how he would have taken up a board member role at Arsenal during a Q&A session.
Jose Mourinho, once one of his great rivals, asked: "I had the opportunity to get to know you at Uefa and Fifa meetings and dinners.
"With your culture and vision, I believe you have the qualities to be a top exec, such as a CEO or director of football, at a club.
"Would you have ever considered such a role at Arsenal or was your desire always to remain on the pitch?"
Wenger responded: "No, I would have considered being on the board at Arsenal as an adviser.
"I believe that honestly there is a deficit of knowledge in the big clubs of top, top-level competition and games of top-level sport.
"And I believe we have seen recently that there are many ways to be successful in football.
"For example, there's the Bayern (Munich) way, where the whole success and continuity relies on people who know the values of the club, and they transfer that from generation to generation: Beckenbauer, Hoeness, Rummenigge.
"Or there are models in England of quick money and quick success.
"Both can work. I like the fact that a club is first an identity and has knowledge that is transferred from generation to generation. So that's why I saw things that way."
