Arsenal boss Wenger makes glowing tribute to English football: I love the anthem!

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has paid a glowing tribute to English football as part of the FA's 150-year celebrations.

Since arriving at Arsenal, Wenger has won three Premier Leagues and four FA Cups, including doubles in both the 1997-98 and 2001-02 seasons.

His 'Invicibles' team, which went unbeaten in the 2003-04 campaign, epitomised the football which has led to millions of fans around the globe following the Premier League.

"There's a real passion here for the game but as well, I believe the whole world benefits from this sport," he said.

"When I travel to World Cups and Euros, I say always, 'Let's be on time, I don't want to miss the national anthem of England'.

"That's where you feel the passion of the game. No matter where it is, there are more English people than anybody else. That's fantastic."
