Arsene Wenger “threw up” after losing Arsenal games because it hurt him so much

Arsene Wenger has revealed that he "threw up" after losing matches as a manager because it hurt the former Arsenal boss so much.

The Frenchman was in charge at the Gunners for 22 years between 1996 and 2018, winning 17 major trophies with the club during this period.

He is now the star of a new documentary which is set to be released on Thursday, titled Arsene Wenger: Invincible, which lifts the lid on the life and career of the 72-year-old.

Prior to winning the Premier League without losing a match with Arsenal in 2003/04, Wenger also had spells in charge of AS Nancy, Monaco and Nagoya Grampus.

Speaking in the new film, Wenger explains that: "I threw up sometimes after games when I lost. It hurt so much. I am a perfectionist.

"When you lose a game, you always know there was a way to win it. But the defeat remains with you forever. Women kill for love, men kill because they hate to lose."

Wenger took charge of 1,224 matches as Arsenal boss and, despite having a win rate of 58%, he lost over 250 matches while managing the club.

However, he also oversaw a run of 49 league matches without defeat between May 2003 and October 2004, which also included his third and final Premier League title.

Is Arsene Wenger the best manager in Premier League history? Let us know in the comments section below.

Not only is this unbeaten league run the longest in English football history, it also helped the Gunners to become the only club to win the Premier League without losing a single match and earned that side their 'Invincibles' tag.

Wenger's admission that he would be sick after losing matches during his managerial career is not the only revelation to come from the new documentary.

During the film, Wenger also admits his regrets over not leaving Arsenal to become the manager of another club and he also criticises his rival Sir Alex Ferguson's infamous hairdryer.

Wenger left the Emirates Stadium at the end of the 2017/18 season and has not returned to management since.

Instead, he has been working as a director of development for FIFA since November 2019 and is one of the key individuals involved in plans for a World Cup every two years.
