The Professor still misses the Premier League and Arsenal



The Professor still misses the Premier League and Arsenal

As the Premier League clocks 30 years of its existence, if mentions of the managers who shaped its history were to be named, then ‘the Professor’ as Arsene Wenger came to be known by the Arsenal faithful, has to be one of the names that should be on the row call.

Arsene Wenger made the modern Arsenal, he was Arsenal through and through.

In fact, there were many of us who grew up in the 1990s thinking Arsenal Football Club was owned by Arsene Wenger; with the idea that the name Arsenal had to come from Arsene.

He was so passionate about it that it was hard to think of Arsenal without Arsene.

Well, according to the Professor, you can take Arsene from Arsenal but you cannot take the Arsenal from Arsene.

The Professor still misses the Premier League and Arsenal

The former Arsenal manager has revealed he misses everything about the Premier League, the intensity of the game and Arsenal itself.

Speaking on Sky Sports News, Arsene Wenger revealed the names of his favorite Premier League players and to his Arsenal bias, he mentioned his ex-players at the club.

The Professor named Thierry Henry, Dennis Bergkamp, Patrick Vieira and Robert Pires.

On the Sports channel, he said:

“The players that come to mind are your Thierry Henrys. Also Dennis Bergkamp between 2002 to 2004. Vieira and Pires too,

“After that, you had great players as well, but they didn’t have success. The Wilsheres, Ramsey, Fabregases. You can’t forget players so you can’t pick a favourite.” He said.

“You miss the intensity and the great moments, the good and the bad moments too. Physically, when you work 22 years in football, that’s like 100 years in normal life.

“It was sadness, it was the end of passion. I still love Arsenal and the Premier League. It’s the first league I watch even today. But you are not part of it as closely as you were before and that’s difficult.”
