Former Arsenal midfielder Denilson has praised Arsene Wenger for his management skills and this knowledge of football.
The player who is now playing in Abu Dhabi for Al-Wahda said that it is thanks to Arsene Wenger that many players have become world class and that he is an outstanding manager.
Denilson came through the Arsenal youth team and said that he owes a lot to Arsene Wenger. He believes that it is thanks to Arsene Wenger that players such as Cesc Fabregas have developed into world-class players and it is important that fans know this.
He admits that Arsenal has not been successful during recent seasons and he believes that this is due to the fact that the Premier League has become more competitive with teams such as Manchester City and Chelsea having unlimited resources. However, he believes that Arsene Wenger has not done badly during these seasons and that he has managed to keep Arsenal at the top despite having a tight budget.
Denilson said that Arsene Wenger is an incredible coach and that he is the one that taught him everything. He said that the French manager is not someone that talks a lot and that create bonds with the players, but he does most of the talking on the training ground. He said that the coach taught him how to improve tactically and also have to position himself on the pitch.
Denilson said that he considers the fans criticisms of Arsene Wenger unfair as he believes that it is thanks to the French manager that Arsenal is now considered as a big club in Europe. For him, Arsene Wenger is the best manager for the club and that the board should offer the manager a new deal to keep him at the club for a long time.
