Arsene Wenger was handed the Lifetime Achievement award for his contributions to sport at the Laureus 2019 awards as the Arsenal icon is respectively given the respect he deserves.

Wenger has been showered with praise since leaving the club in May and despite repeated claims that he’s not yet done in management, the Frenchman has been invited to speak at conferences all across the world.

Wenger has also been conducting his punditry duties with beIN SPORTS with who he’s had an extensive relationship with over the years.

Freeing himself from the eye of the storm, it’s allowed many to look back on his career in fondness and also commend his people skills.

Former Arsenal man Cesc Fabregas was in the crowd as Wenger accepted the award and took the time to embrace the man he refers to as his ‘footballing father’.

It’s relationships like those that have many queuing up to praise the Frenchman and the Arsenal hero was rewarded with a prestigious award.

Wenger took the stand as he accepted the award and as the great orator he is, the 68-year-old took the time to deliver a sensational speech regarding the importance of sport.

“Sport is tremendous, I had a long career but my passion for sport is intact, my passion for human beings is intact,” Wenger said.

Our former boss hasn’t officially retired from management but the more he spends out of the game, the more a new career path becomes a reality.
