The Professor : Arsene Wenger at Arsenal
Now fully updated for the start of the 2004/2005 season The Professor is the first and best biography of Arsene Wenger - the studious Frenchman who has modernised English football. For eight fascinating years Wenger has brought a warm presence and a detached intelligence to Arsenal Football Club. He has proved to be a superb scientific coach, a charming diplomat, a brilliant man-manager and a perceptive talent scout. Listening to Arsene Wenger is an education in football. He won the Premiership and FA Cup double in 1998, and again in 2002, built a luxurious new training ground, signed world-class players, and gave the club new horizons. His success opened the door for Gerard Houllier to manage Liverpool, and for Sven-Goran Eriksson to take over as England coach. In The Professor, Myles Palmer provides a compelling analysis of Wenger's studious character, his dynamic football ideas and his holistic training methods.
