Frenchman reveals big love for Arsenal, leaving many fans smiling

Arsene Wenger has revealed his first Arsenal memory, and says it made him ‘fall in love’ with Arsenal.

The Frenchman called in at Highbury in 1989 having visited Turkey on a scouting mission to watch Galatasaray during his time in charge of Monaco.

Arsenal boss Wenger says the atmosphere at the famous old ground left an impression on him, and revealed how the chance visit indirectly led to his appointment as manager in 1996.

“I remember the first time I visited Highbury, I was on my own and it was January 2, 1989,” Wenger told the Arsenal Magazine. © 2017 Frontier Theme
