Arsene Wenger autobiography due out in 2020
It has been confirmed that Arsene Wenger will release an autobiography in the Autumn of 2020. The Frenchman has signed a deal with Weidenfeld and Nicolson and the book will be released simultaneously in the UK and France.
This book will be one of the most eagerly awaited books in many years. There are not many managers in the game with such a long history at one club. So much happened in Wenger’s 22 years at Arsenal that, if done right, this book could be a best seller.
Too often autobiographies are boring mundane affairs, very rarely do they lift the lid on scandals and club secrets. Most of the time it is just anecdotes and covering stuff we already knew.
What we want to read about is serious behind the scenes stuff that we are unaware of.
I remember reading the fist Sir Alex Ferguson book, I thought it was insightful and a good read. His second book was horrendous in comparison and looked like a rush job. As an example, in the first book, he revealed the threats from the representatives of Andrei Kanchelskis which forced United to sell the Russian. That is the sort of stuff I want to read in Wenger’s autobiography.
Hopefully, the Arsenal legend will give us a no holds bar history of his time at Arsenal and not some cleansed version.
Wenger has so much to say, it would be a shame if he holds back.
