Arsène Wenger

Data di nascita: 22. Ottobre 1949

Arsène Charles Ernest Wenger è un allenatore di calcio ed ex calciatore francese.

Dall'ottobre 1996 guida l'Arsenal, di cui è il tecnico più vincente e più a lungo in carica di tutte le epoche. Dopo le dimissioni di Ronnie Mc Fall da tecnico del Portadown nel Marzo 2016, dopo oltre ventinove anni , è l'allenatore di club più longevo attualmente in carica.

Wenger e Carlo Ancelotti sono gli unici non britannici ad aver centrato il double, ovvero ad aver vinto il campionato e la Coppa d'Inghilterra nella medesima stagione. Nel 2004 divenne l'unico allenatore nella storia della Premier League a terminare l'annata senza subire una sconfitta. Nel 2010 è stato eletto Allenatore del decennio.

Laureato in ingegneria all'Università di Strasburgo, ha una laurea specialistica in economia. Parla correntemente francese, tedesco e inglese e ha una conoscenza di base di italiano, spagnolo e giapponese. Wenger ha la fama di essere un grande scopritore di talenti e di saperli valorizzare al massimo, soprattutto gli europei ma, negli ultimi anni, anche giocatori provenienti dall'Africa. Portò al Monaco George Weah, che in seguito divenne FIFA World Player of the Year con il Milan. Nel suo periodo all'Arsenal, Wenger ha messo sotto contratto giocatori giovani e relativamente sconosciuti, come Patrick Vieira, Nicolas Anelka, Cesc Fàbregas, Kolo Touré, Robin van Persie e Emmanuel Eboué, trasformandoli tutti in giocatori di valore mondiale. In particolare, la difesa che ha stabilito un nuovo record, essendo rimasta imbattuta per dieci gare consecutive nella fase finale della Champions League, era costata in tutto meno di 5 milioni di sterline.

A titolo statistico è l'unico allenatore, a tutto il 2015-16, ad avere perso la finale delle tre maggiori competizioni UEFA per club, la Coppa delle Coppe 1991-92 con il Monaco, Coppa UEFA 1999-2000 e la Champions League 2005-06 con l'Arsenal.

Frasi Arsène Wenger

„La felicità te la dà solo il presente: il passato dà rimpianti, il futuro incertezze. L'uomo se ne è reso conto rapidamente e ha creato la religione: ti perdona gli errori del passato e ti dice di non preoccuparti per il futuro. Io leggo sempre la Bibbia prima delle partite. Sfortunatamente oggi funziona meno. Ma allo stesso tempo significa che l'Arsenal non ha necessariamente bisogno di Dio per vincere.“

„No matter how much money you earn, you can only eat three meals a day and sleep in one bed.“

„Politically, I am for efficiency. Economically first.“

—  Arsène Wenger

Joint Interview with The Times and Daily Mail (2009)
Contesto: Politically, I am for efficiency. Economically first. Until the 1980s the world was divided into two, people were either communist or capitalist. The communist model does not work economically, we all realised that, but the capitalist model in the modern world also looks to be unsustainable. You cannot ignore individual interests, but I believe the world evolves slowly. The last 30 years have brought a minimum amount of money for everybody in the west, the next step, politically, would be a maximum amount of money earned by everybody.

„The speed at which we moved the ball in small spaces and our quality was superb. We played the ball through needles and it was very difficult for Aston Villa.“

„But there are not many players in the world who will make a real difference.“

—  Arsène Wenger

Joint Interview with The Times and Daily Mail (2009)
Contesto: OK, I’m not against that [spending £100m]. If you have the money and you find the one player who can make you win and make the difference, no matter how expensive he is you should do it. But there are not many players in the world who will make a real difference.

„When you give success to stupid people, it makes them more stupid sometimes and not more intelligent.“

—  Arsène Wenger

On José Mourinho, (November 2005) http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport2/hi/football/teams/a/arsenal/4398238.stm
Contesto: 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.

„We've been remarkably consistent, haven't lost a game and we have played stylish football. We have entertained people who just love football.“

„They [Chelsea] are a financially doped club.“

—  Arsène Wenger

The phrase 'financial doping', first used by Wenger in a press conference on the eve of the 125th FA Cup final. (21 May 2005) http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/sport/football/article524819.ece
Attributed
Contesto: 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.

„It's like a child who is used to having ice cream whenever he wants.“

—  Arsène Wenger

Crystal Palace 1-1 Arsenal (6 November 2004) http://www.guardian.co.uk/football/2004/nov/08/match.sport10?INTCMP=SRCH
Interviews
Contesto: It's like a child who is used to having ice cream whenever he wants. When it doesn't come when he asks he tends to get confused and nervous.

„This guy should never play football again. What is he doing on the football pitch?“

—  Arsène Wenger

Martin Taylor, who injured Arsenal striker Eduardo. (23 February 2008) http://www.guardian.co.uk/football/2008/feb/23/newsstory.birminghamcityfc
Contesto: This guy should never play football again. What is he doing on the football pitch? I've gone along with the idea for a long time that to stop Arsenal, you have to kick Arsenal. I knew that was coming for a long time now.

„It's like you wanting to marry Miss World and she doesn't want you, what can I do about it?“

—  Arsène Wenger

José Antonio Reyes, (2007) http://www.arsenal.com/article.asp?thisNav=News&article=412298&lid=NewsHeadline&Title=Wenger+rejects+Atletico's+bid+for+Reyes+as+an+'insult'
Contesto: It's like you wanting to marry Miss World and she doesn't want you, what can I do about it? I can try to help you, but if she does not want to marry you what can I do?

„I could not leave this team at this stage of their development.“

—  Arsène Wenger

Joint Interview with The Times and Daily Mail (2009)
Contesto: I want to go to the end of my job here. I built this team, I want to deliver with this team and I feel if I left I would have in some way betrayed my own beliefs. It is as simple as that. It was nothing to do with what Real Madrid has done. It was about Arsenal. I have a project here that I started three or four years ago and I want to reach the end of it. I could not leave this team at this stage of their development.

„When I see Barcelona, to me it is art.“

—  Arsène Wenger

Joint Interview with The Times and Daily Mail (2009)
Contesto: 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.

„The problem of the media is always to imagine the worst. The problem of the manager is always to imagine the best.“

Arsenal (1996–present)
Contesto: If I go into a season and I say, ‘For fuck’s sake, if we don’t win anything, they will all leave,’ I have already lost. The problem of the media is always to imagine the worst. The problem of the manager is always to imagine the best.

„When I first came to Arsenal, I realised the back four were all university graduates in the art of defending. As for Tony Adams, I consider him to be a doctor of defence. He is simply outstanding.“

—  Arsène Wenger

„In my job, you expect to suffer. That's why when I go to hell one day, it will be less painful for me than you, because I'm used to suffering.“
