A surprise appointment at Arsenal FC when he arrived in 1996, Arsene Wenger has made a science of football management and turned his players into artists. In this newly updated biography, Jasper Rees uncovers the true story behind this deeply private man, having been granted unprecedented access to Wenger's friends and family, players and rivals. Rees shows how Wenger's revolutionary ideas on psychology, diet and fitness were shaped by his own experience - from his childhood in Alsace, to his days as a player and coach in France and Japan. Wenger has survived smears and scandal, taken his club to a new stadium and transformed Arsenal into a European powerhouse. But with his fiercest rival, Alex Ferguson, now out of the picture, can his principles of nurturing youth and playing the 'beautiful game' finally reap the rewards of silverware?
