Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is happy to be back in Asia for preseason.

Wenger admits he "loves" the Far East, having managed Nagoya Grampus in Japan before taking over at Arsenal, and is pleased to be back once more on the Club's 2012 tour.

"I love Asia because I love different cultures," he said. "One of the reasons I do this job is to meet people from different countries and continents.

"I spent two years working in Asia as a manager and I enjoyed it very much, because you find different qualities and different ways of life. I like Asia very much."
