Arsene Wenger Makes Surprising Revelation on His Life Off the Pitch

Arsene Wenger in an interview with French Le Parisien on Friday revealed that a late Reggae legend gives him inspiration whenever he is on his way to training.

The Arsenal manager expressed his undying love for the Jamaican, Bob Marley while also stating reasons for being a fan of his. According to him, the music of the superstar springs him back on high after moments of depression.

Speaking on Bob Marley he said: “Yes, I love his music and the man that he was,”

“He was not ‘fabricated’. He was real. I love people who do not have conventional paths and who stand out because of their talent. Raymond Devos and Pierre Desproges are also some of my favourite comedians.”

Still on life off the pitch the Frenchman cleared the air concerning people's view of him having no sense of humour. He admitted that even though he looks too serious when on the touchline, he still has his other side just like every other human.

“It is true, it is an aspect of my personality that people do not know about,” he said.

“With my job, I am often stressed, so I might appear a bit like a constipated person. But I like to laugh when I am with my friends and to let my humorous side reign free, something that I obviously cannot do in front of the media.

“You know that you can quickly cause irreparable damage when you have my job. I am more interested in controlling that.”

On the possibility of him managing another club after leaving Arsenal, the 66-year-old replied: “It seems to me that it would be difficult, I am 66. I still have a year and a half left on my contract, I will see what happens after. One small step after the other, it is more like that, the way I operate at the moment.”
