Arsene Wenger reveals Arsenal’s most skillful player ever in brilliant interview with Mertesacker

Rapid Fire

Arsenal’s popular youtube series Rapid Fire may just have peaked. On Thursday night, club sponsors Emirates released a special edition of the series featuring club captain Per Mertesacker and manager Arsene Wenger – who seemed to think the Q&A session was some sort of competition.

A regular question in the feature asks whether winter or summer fashion is better. Unsurprisingly, Mertesacker said ‘no fashion’.

Wenger seemed to agree, but we haven’t forgotten those L’Equipe Sport & Style shots!

Among the more fun questions were a few football related ones. The Frenchman revealed that Dennis Bergkamp was the most skillful player he had ever managed and that cult hero Lukas Podolski had the most powerful shot.

There were also a few airplane related questions – thanks Emirates!

Wenger also rates Barack Obama, Muhammad Ali and the South of France. Check out the full video below
