‘Why I watch games three times or more'

By Connor Armstrong

Devoting time to post-match analysis is part and parcel of the job of being a manager - but Arsene Wenger has admitted that he can be very particular about it.

Speaking after the 5-0 win over Lincoln City on Saturday, the boss revealed that he has watched our home defeat against Bayern Munich three times - and then he explained why.

"I watch many games," he said. "For example last night (Friday night) I watched the last 20 minutes of Paris Saint-Germain against Barcelona again.

"It’s interesting once you see all the conclusions that come out of the game. The same people that speak after the game said with 10 minutes to go that Paris Saint-Germain were absolutely outstanding and 10 minutes later they were absolutely rubbish.

"It’s always interesting to take a distance, because people keep your eye and brainwash you with what you think is right. I think it’s always very interesting.

"You cannot live in an isolated world, because when you are a football player, even if you don’t read, people tell you what people say. Like in your job as well [as journalists], when you write an article people say ‘that’s rubbish’, ‘that’s great’ or ‘that’s not great’.

"You cannot live in a world where you cannot be influenced by everything."
