The first book by one of the most successful, respected and legendary football managers of all time, Arsene Wenger
There is only one Arsene Wenger - and for the very first time, in his own words, this is his story.
In this definitive autobiography, the world-renowned, revolutionary football manager discusses his life and career, sharing his leadership principles for success on and off the field. At Arsenal, Wenger won multiple Premier League titles, a record number of FA Cups, and masterminded the historic 'Invincibles' season of 2003-2004. He changed the game in England forever, popularising an attacking approach and changing attitudes towards nutrition, fitness and coaching methods - and towards foreign managers. The book charts his extraordinary career, from his rise in France and Japan where he managed Nancy, Monaco and Nagoya Grampus Eight - clubs that also play in red-and-white - to his twenty-two years at the helm in north London.
A must-read not only for Arsenal supporters but football fans everywhere, MY LIFE IN RED AND WHITE illuminates the mystique surrounding one of the most respected managers in the world's most popular sport.
A well-paced and well-thought-out account of one of football's most iconic and influential figures, and entirely befitting of its remarkable author - Sports Gazette
A predictably brilliant insight into the mind of a man who has long treated football as a matter of, as he puts it, "life and death". His wit, empathy and unwavering principles have been common knowledge for decades, but never has his all-consuming dedication and obsession been on clearer display - Esquire
Opaqueness has never been this refreshing. It's honestly nice that this book has just been about the game and the human connections he made along the way. The moments that made Wenger, the good times and the achievements. In a world of sensationalism, public spats and calling out old foes, we can all learn something from that - FourFourTwo
As with his approach to on-field matters, this book puts in an impressive performance - RTE
A surprisingly honest self-portrait of an obsessive, driven man, who decided that the game really could be beautiful, and was prepared to sacrifice himself to that belief - TLS
