Clichy: Wenger management approach right for Arsenal players

Gael Clichy has backed Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger's approach to man-management.

"He has always been supportive to all the players, giving confidence to the younger and older players," Clichy said.

"The passion he puts into the game shows and at training he is the first to arrive and the last to leave. For me he is one of the best managers in Europe.

"He is really human. If he has only one word, it is true. He brought a lot of players in like Patrick Vieira, Dennis Bergkamp and Thierry Henry - I could be speaking all night naming the players he brought in.

"He brought us here and we have all been playing together for four or five years and of course we have faith in him. We play because we want to give him the confidence he has given us.

"The way he thinks about football and life is a great thing. Maybe for some people it would be better to be more pushing the player and getting more angry but I think overall, 13 years he has been here and you cannot say the way he manages the team is not good because he has done incredibly well and we respect him."
