Arsene Wenger


French football manager.
Arsene Wenger
When you're dealing with someone who only has a pair of underpants on, if you take his underpants off, he has nothing left - he's naked. You're better off trying to find him a pair of trousers to complement him rather than change him.
Wenger quotes
In England, football is important for everybody.
Wenger
We were considering him (Ruud van Nistelrooy) and Francis Jeffers and, in the end, we went for Jeffers.




Wenger Arsene quotes
The background looks like a lot of red cards.

If you eat caviar every day it's difficult to return to sausages.
Arsene Wenger quotes
You weren't world class when Arsenal signed you.
Arsene Wenger
I told you last week that the race was not over when the bookmakers stopped betting. Surprise, surprise, they have started taking money again.
Wenger Arsene quotes
I am still hopeful we can go through the season unbeaten - a frightening thought.
Wenger
I'm ready to take the blame for all the problems of English football if that is what he wants.
Wenger Arsene
They [Chelsea] are a financially doped club. They have enhancement of performances through financial resources which are unlimited. It puts pressure on the market that is not very healthy. They can go to Steven Gerrard or Rio Ferdinand and say ‘how much do you earn? We’ll give you twice as much’. I don’t know if there is anything we can do to stop it.
Arsene Wenger
You forget what you wrote last September, October, November. You have a little bit of Alzheimer's.




Arsene Wenger quotes
I think the job he has done at Arsenal makes him without question their most successful manager, even above people like [Herbert] Chapman.
Arsene Wenger
Fair play is an English word. It is not a French word, and it has been copied all over the world. Unfortunately, it does not function any more here.
Wenger quotes
We need a player who will be a fox in the box and on the pitch. We need a player like Owen is for Liverpool.
Wenger Arsene
I rate Wenger – he's a very polite, well-mannered man, not forceful, though but sometimes you have to be a bit of a ruthless bastard.
Wenger Arsene quotes
At the end of the day, I ask you: who is the most successful team in the world? Brazil. What do they play? Good football. Who won everything last year? Barcelona. What do they play? Lovely football. I am not against being pragmatic because to be pragmatic is to make a good pass, not a bad pass. It is as simple as that. When I see Barcelona, to me it is art.
Arsene Wenger
I feel Bolton played a cup game today, they were one week late.
Arsene Wenger quotes
We've been remarkably consistent, haven't lost a game and we have played stylish football. We have entertained people who just love football.
Arsene Wenger
Gérard (Houllier's) thoughts on the matter echo mine. He thinks that what the national coaches are doing is like taking the car from his garage without even asking permission. They will then use the car for ten days and abandon it in a field without any petrol left in the tank. We then have to recover it, but it is broken down. Then a month later they will come to take your car again, and for good measure you're expected to be nice about it.
Wenger Arsene
I liked the pitch, I liked the referee, I did not like Paul Scholes' tackles.
