We all love a good quote from Arsene Wenger, here are some of his best -
On the expectations on Arsenal fans - “If you eat caviar every day it’s difficult to return to sausages.”
In response to Ferguson saying United were the best team in 2002 - “Everyone thinks they have the prettiest wife at home.”
On Van Nistlerooy - “He can only cheat.”
“To remain unbeaten in a championship like the English championship now is really unbelievable. I want to win the Champions League but, really, this is more important. It is something amazing, something special. How can you do it?”
“A football team is like a beautiful woman. When you do not tell her, she forgets she is beautiful.”
On Mourinho - “He’s out of order, disconnected with reality and disrespectful. When you give success to stupid people, it makes them more stupid sometimes and not more intelligent.”
“If you have a child who is a good musician, what is your first reaction? It is to put them into a good music school, not in an average one. So why should that not happen in football?”
“He [Ferguson] doesn’t interest me and doesn’t matter to me at all. I will never answer to any provocation from him any more.”
“What’s really dreadful is the diet in Britain. The whole day you drink tea with milk and coffee with milk and cakes. If you had a fantasy world of what you shouldn’t eat in sport, it’s what you eat here.”
“At some clubs success is accidental. At Arsenal it is compulsory.”
“We do not buy superstars. We make them.”
“We try to go a different way that, for me, is respectable. Briefly, these are the basics. I thought: “We are building a stadium, so I will get young players in early so I do not find myself exposed on the transfer market without the money to compete with the others. I build a team, and we compensate by creating a style of play, by creating a culture at the club because the boy comes in at 16 or 17 and when they go out they have a supplement of soul, of love for the club, because they have been educated together. The people you meet at college from 16 to 20, often those are the relationships in life that keep going. That, I think, will give us strength that other clubs will not have.”
“I did not see it.”
“Sometimes I see it [a foul by an Arsenal player], but I say that I didn’t see it to protect the players and because I could not find any rational explanation for that they did.”
“I tried to watch the Tottenham match on television in my hotel yesterday, but I fell asleep.”
This is airtime. It’s like Skype only better.
I want to do an ad campaign for Poopsenders.com. So easy. Such a great service.
