Arsene Wenger when people still loved him – a little
The latest in Neil Ardiff’s Heyday collection sees Arsene Wenger as we once knew him, sweeping majestically for FC Mulhouse.
According to Xavier Rivoire in Arsene Wenger, Wenger was likened to Gunter Netzer after scoring four times for the second-oldest French club in 1975. Unfortunately, his ensuing career never required anyone to make the comparison again, although his side did overcome Michel Platini’s AS Nancy Lorraine during that 1975 campaign.
Something that still rankles with the UEFA gaffer perhaps?
