'Stade Arsene Wenger': Arsenal boss now has a stadium named after him

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has today visited Alsace to inaugurate the ‘Stade Arsene Wenger’ in Duppigheim. The Premier League manager has been honoured in the region where he grew up by having a new stadium named after him. Roughly 600 people watched on as Wenger opened the stadium in his name. The Stade Arsene Wenger, built in the village of Duppigheim, seats 500 people. Wenger was clearly delighted with the new stadium and described it as an honour. ‘It’s an honour,’ he said. ‘I’m a little surprised.’ The village’s mayor, Adrien Berthier, is convinced that Wenger was fully deserving of his new stadium, which cost £580,000 to build. Local team USL Duppigheim will play at the stadium and club president Peter Troesch believes Wenger should have stadiums across the country. ‘He deserves to have one in every village in Alsace and France,’ said Troesch.
