Arsène Wenger will be supporting the Poppy Appeal in the lead up to Remembrance Sunday.

It is the time of year when poppies are worn to mark the end of World War I and, though an English tradition, it is not lost on the French manager. Wenger appreciates the significance of what the appeal represents.

“I believe that I am in a foreign country and I always try to respect the culture of the country. So I respect it,” he said.

“When I was in Japan I tried to respect the culture and traditions there, as that is part of being in a foreign country.

Arsenal Football Club is proud to be once again supporting The Poppy Appeal and paying our respects on Remembrance Sunday. Full details of the Club's activities will be released soon on
