Legendary Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger remembered the story when he has refused to add Pep Guardiola to his Arsenal.
Legendary Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger recalled a story about Pep Guardiola. According to the French specialist, while still playing football, the current manager of Manchester City came to him and asked him to play in the “Gunners.”
According to Musée Arsene, this transfer seemed unbelievable to him at the time, because the team had Patrick Vieira and Gilberto Silva in the center of midfield at the time:
“When Guardiola was still a player, he came to me and asked me to play for Arsenal.
At the time, I had Patrick Vieira and Gilberto Silva on the team for his position. So his addition seemed incredible, “said Arsene Wenger.
As you know, Arsene Wenger is the most successful manager in Arsenal history. The French specialist has been in charge of the club for 22 years, which is a record. Wenger coached Arsenal from 1996-2018. Under his leadership, the Gunners have won the Premier League three times and the FA Cup seven times. He is the main creator of the team that won the historic title in 2003-04, the Golden Premier League. Arsenal remain, to this day, the only team to have won the championship unbeaten.
