Arsene Wenger is writing his book and now he has agreed a deal with a publisher for it.
Arsene Wenger has signed with publishers, Weidenfeld & Nicolson, who will print his first autobiography, a book expected to chart “the ex-Arsenal chief’s rise to become one of the most successful football managers of all time.”
It will be released in both French and English at the same time, around this time next year (Autumn 2020) and titled ‘My life in Red and White’.
Alan Samson, Weidenfeld & Nicolson chairman, publisher and Arsenal fan, said: “Arsène Wenger is the man who changed the entire face of football in this country. He is a revolutionary manager whose influence, not only at Arsenal for an amazing 22 years but also on the national game, has been profound. He altered the habits of players yet far more significantly he opened our eyes and broadened our minds.
“For more than two decades he brought to the Premier League as much vivid colour and excitement as anyone could, exemplified by the silk and steel of his immortal ‘Invincibles’. And talking of excitement, as a lifelong Arsenal fan I can scarcely express my own at the prospect of welcoming the great Arsène Wenger to the invincible Hachette squad and the Weidenfeld & Nicolson team.”
Speaking to Beinsports back in September, Wenger confirmed that he was writing his autobiography.
He’s also writing it in French to ensure there are no problems conveying his thoughts accurately.
