French Hail Wenger

Posted on: November 28, 2008

LONDON: Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger was awarded the Britain-based French Sports Personality of the Year on Wednesday, giving him another boost as his team’s turbulent season gets back on track.

Wenger was voted sport’s ‘Francais of the Year’ by the French community in Britain in an online poll, beating a field of nominees including the man who was recently stripped of the Arsenal captaincy, William Gallas.

In another category, Eva Green, who played James Bond’s love interest in ‘Casino Royale’ in 2006, was voted the French Artist of the Year.
