As the President of UEFA, the Swede Lennart Johansson has a responsibility to be impartial and fair in all football matters. However, he cherishes his childhood memories of watching English football and in particular, following the fortunes of the north London team, Arsenal.

Even today, despite his heavy work commitments, Johansson confesses to watching his team the Gunners play whenever possible. Although famously discreet on the matter of where his footballing sympathies lie, he was recently quoted in an interview revealing his true instincts, "I watched Arsenal beat West Ham on the television in the cup." he said proudly. "Of course, you have Manchester United and Liverpool, but Arsenal are the best of the lot."
His all-time favourite Arsenal player is Charlie George.
