We’re not quite sure why Arsene Wenger persists with his sleeping bag coat. We can immediately rule out any fashion-related grounds for sticking by his trusty puffa jacket.
And in recent weeks its begin to let him down on practicality grounds. Vital time that would once have been spent gesturing in frustration in the dugout is now being spent trying to work out how his zip works.
Wenger’s zip trouble during the midweek FA Cup tie against Swansea was the second such incident in recent weeks. He’s also been known to have trouble locating the pockets from time to time.
Nike will probably be keen to get the Frenchman on a training course very soon to put an end to millions of TV viewers watching him grappling with his sportswear on a regular basis.
