Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger: I'm too busy to read Pochettino book

The Exploding Heads give their unique analysis of the North London derby as played on FIFA 18.

LONDON -- Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger said he had not read a new book focusing on Spurs counterpart Mauricio Pochettino ahead of Saturday's North London derby.

Wenger said he was too busy to read "Brave New World," in which Pochettino and his backroom staff reveal some of the methods that have helped Spurs become title challengers.

And he added that he would wait until retiring as a manager before he considered writing a book of his own.

Asked whether he had read "Brave New World," Wenger said: "No. Because I have no time, not because it's not interesting, and because I have a good experience of managing.

"Look, I have nothing against it [learning from others] -- I am open-minded to it. But I have not much time available in my schedule."

Wenger may have enough material for half-a-dozen books after spending 21 years in charge of the Gunners, but he said: "I don't like to talk [and] not to tell the truth. And as long as you work, you cannot tell really what's going on.

"So if it's just to sell a book, I have no interest. If it's to tell really what I think about the game and what I think about some aspects of our game, I will do it. But at the moment it's impossible."
