Robert Pires looking forward to returning to Arsenal

The former France international was a marquee player for FC Goa in the Indian Super League and is looking forward to returning to the club where he won countless honors.

At the age of 41, Robert Pires guided FC Goa to the last four of the Indian Super League where they eventually lost out to Atletico Kolkata who went on to become the champions of the inaugural league season.

And Pires, who is not sure whether he would like to continue playing football or not, says that he is hoping to go back to Arsenal in his role as the club’s ambassador. Towards the end of January and in February, the World Cup winner will be travelling to Indonesia and will also do some work for a French TV channel where he will be providing coverage to the Champions League.

However, the former France international has stated that Arsenal is like his second home and added that he would love to return to the club in some capacity.

Pires also revealed that if he chose to go into football coaching, he will do so after Arsene Wenger leaves that club.

“I don’t know if I will go into coaching but if I do so at Arsenal, it will be after Arsene Wenger’s reign,” he said. “I still need to do my coaching license so I’ll need to take my time. I still need to take it step-by-step.
