A former Premier League boss spoke to schoolchildren about working with Arsene Wenger, Prince William and Patrick Viera.

Former Arsenal and FA Vice Chairman David Dein was a guest at Chace Community School in Enfield to deliver a motivational speech outlining his time as one of football’s most influential figures.

Dein, who is credited as being the driving force behind the formation of the Premier League, as well as being president of England’s 2018 World cup bid, addressed more than 100 sixth form students at the school

He spoke about his relationships with Arsene Wenger, David Beckham, Prince William and other notable figures in the game including Patrick Viera and Dennis Bergkamp. He also spoke passionately about the woman’s game and the introduction of goal line technology during the hour-long talk.

Dein, 74, who now visits schools and prisons through the Speakers for Schools network, praised Chace students, describing them as "extremely polite, well-mannered and knowledgeable about football".

Head teacher Daniel Bruton said: "David was engaging and the students were captivated by hearing, first hand, as to the mechanics and workings of the Premier League. It is by inviting guests of David’s calibre into the school that we can fully embed our vision of students being the best they can be."

Faculty head Brett Ellis was equally impressed. He said: "It is rare that students are invited to speak, on a one to one basis, to notable sporting figures such as David. He was inviting, down to earth and willing to take all manner of questions."

During the session, Mr Dein faced questions regarding Spurs chances in the Premier League this season as well as Arsene Wenger's future. Mr Dein stated how Mr Wenger was a "revolutionary" who had "transformed" Arsenal football club since his arrival in 1996.
