Wojciech Szczesny has told Sky Sports he hopes Arsene Wenger turns down the England post because he is doing a fantastic job at Arsenal.

England have begun the search for their new manager after Roy Hodgson resigned from the position earlier this week.

His resignation came following the humiliating defeat by Iceland that saw the Three Lions crash out of Euro 2016 at the last 16 stage.

A number of names are likely to be considered for the position as England coach as the FA looks to find the ideal successor to Hodgson.

Among those that are reportedly under consideration is Arsenal boss Wenger, whose contract with the Gunners expires next summer.

Szczesny though does not want to see his manager depart the Emirates, although he does admit he would be a great thing for England.

“I am sure he would be a great thing for England but my main interest is Arsenal and I hope it doesn't happen,” he told Sky Sports.

“I hope it is something that will not happen because he is doing a fantastic job at Arsenal and I'd love to see him stay there."

It will certainly be interesting to see who England turn to to take up the role as manager after the huge disappointment of Euro 2016.

If they are looking for another elder statesman like they had with Hodgson then Wenger is clearly the ideal candidate for the job.

Whether or not a move could be agreed however remains to be seen, with the Daily Mail reporting that Arsenal are planning contract talks to ward off the apparent interest from England.
