Arsenal chief Dein: Wenger still has fire in his belly

Former Arsenal chief David Dein says Arsene Wenger still has the "fire in his belly".

Dein brought Wenger to Arsenal 999 games ago.

"He's a football purist and this is his life. He's still got the fire in his belly. He is a workaholic. I can understand people being anxious about not winning trophies, but nobody more than Arsene himself."

And Wenger's legacy to Arsenal?

"It will be five-fold," says Dein to the Telegraph.

"Wonderful new training facilities. A new stadium. A new style of football. More money in the bank that at any time in the club's history. And recognition and respect for Arsenal that spans the entire globe. That's not a bad list for his CV."
