Arsene Wenger: Sutton United FA Cup tie reminded me of my childhood

ARSENE WENGER has given The NLP rare insight into his past and says his trip to Sutton United this week took him back to a time before the Premier League.

The Gunners overcame the National League side in an eventful evening at Gander Green Lane as their mega stars lived the Non-League life for a night.

“I come from a club which is smaller than Sutton, it reminded me a lot of my childhood!” the Arsenal manager said.

“People mentioned a lot before the game about the changing rooms but I thought they were fantastic. The closer you are the more united you are – and we were very close.

“When you are too far away like you are in some dressing rooms then it’s not so good. I prefer what we had here. The players can hear their manager more!”

There’s a special feature on Sunday about the big FA Cup day – don’t miss it!
