Arsene Wenger spoke about, among many aspects, his ambition to visit India, his fascination for the country and encouraging Arsenal to organise a tour in India in an interview uploaded to the team’s Facebook page.
“One of the things I have missed in my life is visiting India. I am fascinated by India, I don’t know why, but I have never been in India,” said Wenger, who will take charge of his final match as Arsenal manager on Sunday (May 13).
Wenger, during the interview, revealed that he encouraged Arsenal to organise a tour in India: “I have always encouraged Arsenal to organise a tour in India. We were close a few times but it never happened.”
Wenger described India as a “special society” with a philosophy different to other countries. “As a kid, I learnt about the country’s special resistance, a non-violent resistance, and I was certainly impressed by that. India gave examples of creative ways to think and act. It’s a special society where there is a complete different philosophy compared to other countries.”
