Michael Rosen questions Arsene Wenger on the philosophy of Wengerism

In today’s Observer former Arsenal manager answers questions from the likes of Jeremy Corbyn, Spike Lee and of course Michael Rosen.

Below Wenger addresses the key issue of Wengerism, a philosophy of life as well as football. Typically though he gives little away. We may have to wait for Wenger: the Collected Works

Michael Rosen

Do you think taking part in football at your level teaches a person a form of philosophy?

Yes, I would say without a form of philosophy you cannot work at that level. You are the guide. And the guide needs first of all to know where he goes, no? That’s why it’s important to have a clear idea of what you want from people, and that you can share that in a clear way with your players. Why do players listen to some people and not to others? I don’t know. But you need a clear philosophy, because it gives you a consistency as well. You always have to know: why am I here? Why do I do that? That gives you strength when it’s tough.
