“I had a blast when I played for Monaco. I had two fantastic years with Arsène Wenger. We had a tremendous run in the Champions League when Arsène led us to the semi finals. I learnt a lot from him, especially now for my coaching career. He was an inspiration and I took a lot of what he taught me.
I am hoping that Arsène will come to the game [USA vs France] on Friday and that he will come for a coffee in our hotel before.”

Highly successful people who are still sweet and grateful are the best.
Robin Van Persie saved Arsenal from being kicked out of the EPL, hallelujah. Arsenal can’t breathe easy yet though- they play Marseilles on Thursday, and they’ll have to beat that French powerhouse if they want to progress in the Champions League. Fingers are duly crossed!
