Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has revealed his admiration for Sir Bobby Robson and the passion he had for football.
Arsene Wenger – Bobby had such great passion
Bobby was one of the greatest ever English managers, and he could inspire his players to great heights, because of his passion for the game and for his players that was there for all to see.
Speaking to writers from The Times and Daily Mail, the Frenchman, one of the top club managers in the world, who has only just turned down an offer from Real Madrid to stay in London, has given an insight into his own love of the game.
Arsene has also, like a lot of current managers, including the great Alex Ferguson, have been inspired by Bobby’s great passion for the game.
“Did you see the last match Sir Bobby Robson watched?”
“A charity game, but still he had that spark in his eye. He had two, three days to live, he could have sat at home, yet he chose to go to football.”
“What else would he have done? Sit there and think about dying, maybe be terrified? The way to get out was to go to his passion.”
Bobby was a great man, and his impact on the game of football will go on long after his death.
We’re just proud the great man got to manage his home town club, Newcastle United, to great success for 5 years (1999-2004) before he died.
RIP Bobby – we love you.
