Arsene Wenger Summary

Arsene Wenger: The Biography by Xavier Rivoire

At the start of the 2007-08 football season, Arsene Wenger will begin his twelfth season in charge of Arsenal. In an industry of disposable contracts and ruthless sacking, such longevity is testament to his success and dedication, and to the loyalty of players and fans. He is credited with revolutionising one of the biggest clubs in Europe - famously bringing free-flowing football to 'boring, boring Arsenal' - and with influencing approaches to the modern game. Wenger has said he is far too young to write his autobiography. Instead, he has cooperated with leading sports journalist Xavier Rivoire in this new authorised and definitive biography, which includes exclusive interviews with Wenger, ex and current players, family, colleagues and observers, across Japan, France and England. The result is a highly readable portrait of an astute and incisive manager, a shrewd talent scout and man manager, as well as an intensely private and intriguing man. 'My friends have read this book and liked it so it must be good' - Arsene Wenger. This book is the result of ten years of interviews with Wenger and exclusive new interviews with over 70 current and ex-players, colleagues and family, including Adams, Pires, Petit, Ljungberg, Weah. No other book is as comprehensive or offers as much insight into Wenger's career, especially the early years. It provides the complete overview of Wenger's career with insights into his methods, tactics, and views on the game. This book is from the author of the bestselling: Robert Pires: Footballeur. The book will appeal to the huge Arsenal fan base, and also to football lovers who admire his managerial skills and tactical nous. Widespread media coverage is expected in national and sports press and radio.
