Citações Arsène Wenger

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

— Arsène Wenger
Context: 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. Martin Taylor, who injured Arsenal striker Eduardo. (23 February 2008) [http://www.guardian.co.uk/football/2008/feb/23/newsstory.birminghamcityfc]

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

— Arsène Wenger
Context: 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.

„We played the ball through needles“

— Arsène Wenger
Context: 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.

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

— Arsène Wenger
Context: 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. 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]

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

— Arsène Wenger
Context: 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.“

— Arsène Wenger
Context: 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. [http://news.arseblog.com/2014/03/arsene-wenger-at-1000-in-stats-and-quotes/ (2008)]

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

— Arsène Wenger
Context: 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. Crystal Palace 1-1 Arsenal [http://www.guardian.co.uk/football/2004/nov/08/match.sport10?INTCMP=SRCH (6 November 2004)]

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

— Arsène Wenger
Context: 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.

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

— Arsène Wenger
Context: 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? 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']

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

— Arsène Wenger
Context: 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.
