A Lesson Beyond Sports
One needs to do a study on Arsenal and Wenger to understand what a great man and coach he is. In life and in business, consistency is everything. He has remained faithful to his principles and not changed strategy dramatically because he wants to please people.
That also takes courage. Just imagine if Nigeria or the Super Eagles was run like that. We will not be in a position of up today and down tomorrow. Imagine the investments and sponsorships that will come our way on account of consistency.
Imagine if the Super Eagles consistently remained in the top 5 of FIFA ranking which we attained in 1994. Winning is not everything, pursuing excellence and being in the top bracket consistently is.
There is a lesson beyond sports, in the life of Wenger and Arsenal Football Club.
