Watch: Arsene Wenger explains why Anfield was his favourite ground to visit


Arsene Wenger says Liverpool‘s stadium Anfield was his favourite away ground to visit while he was in charge of Arsenal.

Over the course of those two decades he took the Gunners far and wide in a number of competitions, but Anfield clearly had a lasting impact on the Frenchman.

“There are special vibes there,” he says. Watch the full clip below.
