Arsene Wenger, Arsenal Football Club’s manager, and a handshake, or to be more accurate, the lack thereof, has made headlines across the world.

Reportedly, Wenger refused to shake the hand of his Bayern Munich counterpart, Pep Guardiolia both before and after the two clubs faced off.

What followed was a veritable media storm with media outlets asking; What does that mean? Was it a snub? Did it mean anything at all? The frenzy drives home one solid point: the simple handshake can also be a powerful statement.
