Low: Wenger coaching worth a trophy

Germany manager Joachim Low has revealed his admiration for Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger, saying the Frenchman's work in nurturing young talent is more than a substitute for silverware.

Wenger has not won a trophy with the Gunners since winning the FA Cup in 2005, while the Premier League title has eluded them since 2004. After a glut of trophies in the early part of Wenger's 16-and-a-half-year reign, the barren spell has left Arsenal fans frustrated.

However, Low believes Wenger's ability to hone raw potential into the finished article, such as he did with Cesc Fabregas and Robin van Persie, compensates for a lack of success.

"I like Arsene Wenger a lot, because he stays true to his ideas and has been loyal to the same club for such a long time. With him, young players become stars. That's worth having a title or two fewer," Low told Le Parisien.

Low will take his prodigiously-gifted generation of young German players - such as Mario Gotze, Marco Reus, and Toni Kroos - to Paris this week for Wednesday's friendly against Wenger's compatriots.

Though the Nationalmannschaft have got the better of Les Bleus since France reached the World Cup final on German soil in 2006, Low believes Didier Deschamps is the right man to help the 1998 World Cup-winners recapture their past success.

"He's an excellent coach. He's done good work at Monaco, Juventus and Marseille. As a player, I was impressed by his ability to read the game and by his attitude of working for the team. He's a natural leader. With him, France will get back to winning ways," Low said, before picking out his favourite players in Deschamps' squad.

"You just need to see Franck Ribery with Bayern Munich: what a player! He's one of the best in the world. I also like Karim Benzema a lot, he's brilliant with Real Madrid, and Patrice Evra. It has nothing to do with luck that he's been a first-team regular at Manchester United for so long."
