Hill-Wood Praises Wenger As 'Best'

Arsenal chairman, Peter Hill-Wood, has hailed Arsene Wenger as the best in the business but dreads the day he decides to leave.

Speaking after Le boss led the Gunners to within a whisker of yet more silverware, Hill-Wood threw all the plaudits he could at the Frenchman.

'We have got the best manager of all and I dread the day when he tells us he's had enough.

'There is no plan B after Arsene.

'He doesn't want international football because he would miss the day-to-day involvement of club management. He has changed the face of Arsenal, there is no doubt about that.'

'I have no idea what happens when he goes. Managers like Arsene Wenger only come around once in a lifetime.'

'He is the best.'

Funny that David Dein was the driving force behind Scolari, but he didn't nominate Wenger for the job. Who says members of the FA are self serving?

What would be the point of nominationg Wenger for the job when he has already stated that he is not only, not interested in the England job, not interested in managing a National team at all but also will remain faithful to his Arsenal contract. Surely DD should only be looking at viable candidates for the job, and Wenger clearly isn't so.

Rocky, do you blindly believe everything Arsene says? It might have taken some persuasion, but do you think he would have been best man for the job? If he could do for England what he has done for Arsenal...

Wenger wouldn't leave Arsenal anyway as he said "it'll be like the captain leaving the ship". It will be sad when he leaves as he makes us play so interestingly and makes it so interesting to watch that without him it won’t feel right, sort of like Henry or Highbury to Arsenal.

BTW, yes I think he would be good for England, but he is perfect for Arsenal.

Arsene Wenger runs our club from top to bottom, he even helped design parts of the new stadium, he said he enjoys the day to day running of a club and wouldn't get that with an international job, why should I not believe that? In Europe they call them coachs, because all they do is coach the team, Arsene Wenger is a manager because he runs almost every aspect of our team, and it's plain to see....he loves it, there would be no reason to lie.

I also think Linneker's comments are right on.

10 years at Arsenal this summer. I still remember the day he arrived as if it were yesterday.... "Arsene who?"

No, Plan B from the horse's mouth means that he will be around for a good number of years unless something very dramatic happens.
