Corinthians chief Edu happy to tap into Arsenal network

Corinthians chief Edu admits he's been tapping into his Arsenal network while in London.

Edu has been back in London to gather ideas for Corinthians' new stadium project having been appointed general manager back in Brazil. So, has he sought out Arsène Wenger for advice on his new role?

"Yes I have spoken to him but the advice he gave to me was during the times I was with him," Edu told "They were great times, I learned a lot and I told him this week that everything I learned was from him.

"Now I am manager of Corinthians it is quite different to managing in England. In Brazil we have a coach and then a manager. The coach looks after the team on the pitch and the manager looks at everything around that - they have to sign players and get other things done.

"But I learned a lot of things from Arsène Wenger and many things in Brazil too."
