Zico is relishing the prospect of meeting one of his coaching idols on Wednesday...Olympiacos lock horns with Arsenal on Wednesday and a draw will be enough for the Greek side to qualify for the knock-out phase. Head coach Zico is looking forward to the match and especially to facing Arsenal gaffer Arsene Wenger.
"Arsene Wenger's mentality has been to bring together footballers who bring happiness in our sport, the type of players I like to watch," Zico told uefa.com.
""I've followed him since he was in Japan, and he always was a guardian of the art of football – football with happiness and football played well.
"At Arsenal he has the qualities to get the best out of players. He made the right choice going there because he has been able to create a good team with great players, but they aren't unbeatable.
"Arsenal can be defeated, as they already have been a few times [this season], but they're a very difficult team to beat.
