Arsene Wenger paying tribute to Thierry Henry, European Footballer of the Year (April 2006)

"It’s a reward not only for an exceptional football player but when you win it for three years it means you have dedicated your life to football.

Unfortunately you get more of the headlines when you go out at 3 o'clock in the morning and you are drunk."

Arsene Wenger responding to criticism of Arsenal's start to the season (August 2005)

"I have heard it said repeatedly that we don’t have a plan B, or we are unable to alter our style, but to be honest I think that is ridiculous. The people in the media are paid to talk, fair enough, but they are not paid to work for me, so their opinion is just their opinion. People are quick to bury you but in the end the quality of the football will always talk loudest. Let people talk if that’s their job, but at Arsenal we are people who live from actions rather than words."
