For those interested in football, Arsene Wenger needs no introduction. A Frenchman who revolutionized the way football is played in Britain, Wenger is very Gallic. For one thing, he looks great in clothes, but as the link to this video amply shows, he is quite the intellectual (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KPQREjBg9SM).
Especially interesting is his emphasis on ethics. He credits his Catholic faith and village upbringing, remarking that his greatest achievement in football management was to never depart from the values instilled in him in the village. Max Scheler would be delighted with the hints of the estate in all of this (V&R, Chapter 5).
The highlight of the video is his unwavering position that to manage a great football club is to live a life of sacrifice. It’s a brilliant theological moment.

Such an impressive man.
