In the week Arsene Wenger’s much-anticipated autobiography “My Life In Red & White” is released in the UK, it has been confirmed that the Frenchman will be the subject of a documentary for release in 2022.
“Arsene Wenger: Invincible” has been commissioned by Canal Plus and will be directed by Gabriel Clarke – best known as ITV’s roving football reporter – and Christian Jeanpierre, a sports journalist familiar on French TV.
The film, which will be narrated by Wenger, will cover his career in France, Japan and England and feature interview contributions from key figures during his career, including our Invincibles side of 2003/04.
Variety reports that the documentary “will boast unseen archive and showcase original and intimate filming with Wenger, who has remained an enigmatic figure all these years.”
Speaking about his participation in the project, Wenger said: “This documentary highlights a very special period in my life and career. I have total confidence in the team and the production companies. Gabriel and Christian are probably the only directors who could persuade me to do this documentary! I will try to give the best of my memories and my life story!”
Hear’s hoping he remembers more than he let on during his post-match interviews…
