Many car enthusiasts are football fans too; no surprise therefore that people sometimes find parallels to draw between two subjects. But what about likening a football manager to a car?
We have no idea why they did it, but football site ESPN FC went around the streets surrounding the Emirates Stadium in North London to ask fans of Arsenal Football Club a rather bizarre question regarding the team’s manager Arsene Wenger.
“If Wenger was a car, what kind of car would you describe him as?” asked the ESPN FC host to each supporter interviewed in the video.
Answers that came back ranged from Nissans and Skodas to Mercedes-Benz right up to Aston Martin and Rolls-Royce.
Wenger has been the manager of Arsenal since 1996 and is currently the longest-serving manager in top flight English club football. He is the Gunners’ most successful manager ever, having guided them to three league titles and six FA Cup triumphs.
His two-decade tenure in the North London team is currently under scrutiny following a series of poor results that sees the team out of the UEFA Champions League and languishing sixth in the Premier League.
