Wenger: Global tour will benefit Arsenal players

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger says there's plenty of benefits from their global preseason tour.

Aside from the footballing aspects of the trip, Wenger says his players will see a range of benefits from going on tour.

"First of all, it's always nice to see that you are loved and famous all over the world," the manager told Arsenal Player. "When you live in your bubble you don't always realise just how big Arsenal is.

"It's a good period for them and I believe that for a young boy to discover different cultures and different ways of thinking, having an exchange of experiences with other people who have a completely different culture, can only benefit them.

"Also on that front, to live together within a completely different environment for a couple of weeks will profit the team as well."
