An interview with God

http://www.theguardian.com/football/2013/sep/21/dennis-bergkamp-arsenal-love-game

God recently came out with a new book, named "Stillness and Speed". The Guardian posted some extracts from the book, linked above.

One of the more interesting quotes (although every bit of the extract was interesting, because, well, it's God, duh):

Arsène Wenger has an interesting view about this. He says: "It is a spiritual thing. I am convinced of that. I believe you have two kinds of players who play football. Those who want to serve football like you serve God, and they put football so high that everything that is not close to what football should be is a little bit non-acceptable. And then you have those who use football to serve their ego. And sometimes the ego can get in the way of the game, because their interest comes before the interest of the game.

"Sometimes the big ego is linked with what we call strong personalities, charisma. But most of the time what people call charisma is just big ego. I believe that Dennis was one of those who had such a high idea of the game and such a respect for the game that he wanted that to be above everything. I believe that the real great players are guided by how football should be played and not by how football should serve them. If it becomes spiritual, it's endless and you're always driven to going higher and getting closer to what you think football should be."

And now we know what Arsene Wenger thinks about God.
