Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger reveals how much he loves football at Christmas

Arsene Wenger Santa Clause

Arsene really loves football, and he really loves Christmas so you better not mess with his football at Christmas!

How can you not love Christmas? You're allowed to eat as much rubbish as you want, you can open presents and there is loads of football on the tele.

But guess what? Louis van Gaal HATES Christmas! And he really hates football at Christmas and recently told the Guardian that: “There is no winter break and I think that is the most evil thing of this culture. It is not good for English football.”

He's such a grinch. Thankfully one man is ready to stand up to Manchester's version of Ebenezer Scrooge, and fight for our right to eat leftover turkey while watching loads of football.

And that man is Arsene Wenger! Who'd have thought it? Turns out that Arsene really does love Christmas time, and in fact he's so passionate about playing during the holidays that he'd get all sorts of emotional if it went away.

So, speaking to the Guardian, the Arsenal boss revealed just how emotional he would get if football at Christmas was scrapped:“I have a lot of respect for Louis van Gaal but I don’t agree with him on that.

“Maybe it’s because I’ve been in England for such a long time. I had his ideas when I arrived here but today I would cry if you changed that because it’s part of English tradition and English football.

What do you reckon? Would you want football at Christmas to stop or are you sensible and just love turkey and footie.

Either way, just look at how much Arsene loves Christmas!
