According to The Bookseller, Arsene Wenger will publish an autobiography in the Autumn of 2020 after signing a deal with Weidenfeld and Nicolson.
Apparently titled ‘My Life in Red and White’, the book ‘sees Wenger discuss his career in depth, including the “Invincibles” season and the challenges of his later years at the Emirates’.
The head of the publishers, Alan Samson, says, “Arsene Wenger is the man who changed the entire face of football in this country. He is a revolutionary manager whose influence, not only at Arsenal for an amazing 22 years but also on the national game, has been profound. He altered the habits of players yet far more significantly he opened our eyes and broadened our minds.
“For more than two decades he brought to the Premier League as much vivid colour and excitement as anyone could, exemplified by the silk and steel of his immortal ‘Invincibles’.
“And talking of excitement, as a lifelong Arsenal fan I can scarcely express my own at the prospect of welcoming the great Arsene Wenger to the invincible Hachette squad and the Weidenfeld & Nicolson team.”
There are so many aspects of his time at Arsenal that would be fascinating to hear in his own words, and let’s hope that he provides real insight into his years at the club.
One to look forward to.
