The Professor is the very first biography of Arsen Wenger - the studious Frenchman who has modernised English football. George Graham gave Arsenal Football Club success, confidence and six trophies. A tough act to follow. But Wenger has proved to be the right man in the right place at the right time. For five fascinating years the tall Frenchman has bought a warm presence and a detached intelligence to a difficult job. He has proved to be a superb scientifi fitness coach, a charming diplomat, a brilliant man-manager and a perceptive talent scout. Listening to Arsene Wenger is an education in football. He won the premiership and FA Cup double in 1998, built a luxurious new training ground, signed world class players, and gave the club new horizons. His success has opened doors for his friend Gerard Houllier to manage Liverpool, and for Sven-Goran Eriksson to take over as England coach. In the Professor Myles Palmer provides a fascinating analysis of Arsen Wenger's studious character, his dynamic football ideas, his holistic training methods at Monaco, and his audacious career move to Japan. Palmer believes that Wenger lives for his team and through his team, and has revealed his philosophy by the players he has bought and sold.
