He says:

"Arsene Wenger has taken football to a different level with the athletes he's produced - not just the athletes but players at the same time. He's changed the face of the game with the players he's got and put all the work he's done with people in France to good use.

"I remember when I was up against them with my team you were looking up at them, they were giants. You were going 'dear oh dear'. Years ago those guys were absolutely useless. They would plod around the pitch and win the odd header. But today these guys are phenomenal. I mean, someone like Thierry Henry is a ballet dancer - an athletic ballet dancer with incredible vision. They are different, absolutely different to what we have been use to over the last 20 years."
