Reports are out claiming that Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has revealed he is an admirer of Indian culture ahead of the Diwali festival.
The French tactician has publicly praised the peacefulness of Indian culture ahead of the five-day festival of lights.
“I am an admirer of Indian culture because, historically, through [Mahatma] Gandhi, when you are a young boy you learn about [his non-violence principles] and it has a special meaning to you,” Wenger told Arsenal Player.
“When you are a very young boy you think you have to fight violence with violence and you never forget about a guy who gives you that [peaceful] example.
“It makes you curious about Indian culture as well because they have their special culture with the different strands in society. It’s a very interesting one.”
