Wenger: Why I love Bob Marley!

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has revealed one of the inspirations to
have accompanied him throughout his long career: the music of Bob

The Gunners boss is a lifelong fan of the Jamaican reggae
artist, to whose work he listens on his drive to the club’s training

“Yes, I love his music and the man that he was,” Wenger told Le Parisien. “He was not fabricated. He was real.

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.”
 The Frenchman was offering insight into the side of his personality that
he largely keeps hidden from the spotlight, explaining that his sense
of humour helps him to deal with the rat race of constant press
conferences and remind himself that every little thing is gonna be

“It is true. It is an aspect of my personality that
people do not know about,” he remarked of his lighter side. “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 run 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.”

if he would ever consider an exodus from Arsenal to keep on moving and
take control of another club, Wenger was doubtful but allowed himself an
open mind.

He said: “It seems to me that it would be difficult; I
am 66. I still have a year-and-a-half left on my contract [and] I will
see what happens after. One small step after the other – it is more like
that, the way I operate at the moment.”
