Description

Since 1996, Arsene Wenger has brought a warm presence and a detached intelligence to Arsenal Football Club. He has proved to be a scientific coach, a diplomat, a man-manager and a perceptive talent scout. He won the Premiership and FA Cup double in 1998, built a luxurious new training ground, signed world-class players, and gave the club new horizons. His success has opened doors for his friend Gerard Houllier to manage Liverpool, and for Sven-Goran Eriksson to take over as England coach. This book aims to provide an analysis of Arsene Wenger's studious character, his dynamic football ideas, his holistic training methods at Monaco and his career move to Japan. The author believes that Wenger lives for his team and through his team, and has revealed his philosophy by the players he has bought, sold and nurtured.show more
