World Cup 2014: Arsene Wenger wears Arsenal training gear in Brazil whilst eating ice-cream

The Gunners manager has been taking in the tournament in Brazil as a pundit for French television

Arsene Wenger might be far from his north London home as he takes in the World Cup in Brazil but he's not forgetting where his loyalties lie.

The Arsenal manager was pictured enjoying some ice-cream along with Christian Vieiri, Juan Sebastian Veron and Fabio Cannavaro last night whilst wearing an Arsenal training top.

It's not the first time the Frenchman has been spotted wearing Arsenal gear either. The man who led the Gunners to FA Cup glory last season was seen wearing tracksuit bottoms emblazoned with the club's crest whilst on Eurosport.

Wenger is in Brazil working as a pundit for French television, but is also understood to be using the opportunity to scout for possible transfer targets. Chile's Alexis Sanchez clearly made an impression with Arsenal understood to have tabled a bid for the Barcelona forward.

 

But it's not all been work for the Arsenal boss. He was filmed doing his best impression of Robin van Persie's diving header whilst playing beach football on Ipanema beach in Rio de Janeiro.

 

 

Numerous Arsenal players will be in action today with Per Mertesacker, Lukas Podolski and Mesut Ozil of Germany taking on a France team that includes Laurent Koscielny and Olivier Giroud.
