But the Frenchman insists that talks are ongoing between him and the Bundesliga champions. It needs some time to have a think about. First of all, I don't have any agent.
"It's nice to let me explain the story because it's a surprising story", Wenger told beIN SPORTS.
"Secondly, I've known [Franz] Beckenbauer, Rummenigge and [Uli] Hoeness for 40 years". The success of this club has been built on the exceptional competency, on the honesty, on the discretion and on the simplicity. We always told the truth between all of us when necessary.
'What happened? My name came out from nowhere, without having anything with this.
It is understood that Wenger reached out to Bayern CEO, Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, on Wednesday to discuss the position. He was in his vehicle going to the game against Olympiacos. We talked for four to five minutes maximum and he told me they had assigned Hans-Dieter Flick to be the coach - he will manage the next two games. I could not answer and by politeness I called him back.
Wenger told BeIN Sports on Wednesday that: "I'd never refuse to talk to Bayern Munich, because I know the people who have led the club for 30 years and I was almost going to Bayern a long, long time ago. This is the true story", said Wenger.
"For myself, I wish good luck to Bayern, and for me, the situation is clear".
"Arsene Wenger called (Bayern chairman) Karl-Heinz Rummenigge on Wednesday afternoon to make him aware of his interest in the job", a Bayern spokesperson told AFP subsidiary SID.
