EPL: I miss Premier League – Arsene Wenger names his favourite players


Former Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger, has admitted that he misses the intensity of the Premier League while naming his favourite players.

Speaking on Sky Sports News, Wenger said that Arsenal’s ex-players, Thierry Henry, Dennis Bergkamp, Patrick Vieira, and Robert Pires, are his favourite players.

“You miss the intensity and the great moments, the good and the bad moments too,” Wenger said.

“Physically, when you work 22 years in football, that’s like 100 years in normal life.

“It was sadness, it was the end of passion. I still love Arsenal and the Premier League. It’s the first league I watch even today. But you are not part of it as closely as you were before and that’s difficult.”

“The players that come to mind are your Thierry Henrys. Also Dennis Bergkamp between 2002 to 2004. Vieira and Pires too,” Wenger added, when asked to name his favourite players.

“After that, you had great players as well, but they didn’t have success. The Wilsheres, Ramsey, Fabregases. You can’t forget players so you can’t pick a favourite.”
