Arsène Wenger

Football Manager

Arsène Wenger is a French manager and former footballer from Strasbourg, France. Wenger was not a particularly distinguished player, but played 67 matches for Mulhouse and RC Strasbourg. Wenger’s managerial career started unassumingly in 1984, when he became manager of Nancy. Fired by Nancy in 1987, Wenger joined AS Monaco in the same year, winning Ligue 1 with Monaco in 1988. Wenger secured one other trophy for Monaco, the Coupe de France in 1991 before leaving the club in 1994.

Wenger spent a brief spell in Japan at Nagoya Grampus Eight before becoming Arsenal manager in 1996, winning his first trophies with the club in 1998 when Arsenal won both the Premier League and FA Cup. Wenger has so far won the FA Cup a further four times, and the league a further two times. The 2003-04 Premier League season was the last of those Premier League victories, when Wenger guided Arsenal to the trophy without suffering a single defeat.

Wenger is known for his attacking philosophy and his focus on youth development, and can be credited with revolutionising English football on more than one occasion. Wenger is also known for speaking several languages including French, German, English, Italian, Spanish and Japanese and thanks to his intellectual demeanour is known as “Le Professeur”.
