Former Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger says he is "still in shock" following his departure from the Emirates.
Wenger has brought his Arsenal tenure to an end after 22 years in charge and, having been given an appreciative send-off over the last few weeks, is now plotting his next step.
"It's just too soon to know what I will do next," said Wenger.
"I have not even emptied my desk yet and in a way, I am still in a state of shock.
"I am going to give myself until June 14, the day before the World Cup begins, to decide.
"The question is do I still want to coach, to be on the bench, or is it time to take up different functions?
"The one thing I can say for sure is that I will continue to work.
"But do I want to continue to suffer as much? I want to continue to defend my ideas of football, that's for sure.
"Spontaneously, I would say I still want to coach, but I can't really say that yet for sure."
