Wenger has been training Arsenal since 1996. After the departure of Alex Ferguson from Manchester United, the Frenchman became the most “long-lived” coach in the English Premier League football, without leaving his post for 22 years. During this time, “Arsenal” won several titles, and the most famous achievement was the 2003/2004 season record – then the club did not lose a single match in the championship. While working in the coaching position, Wenger became a true symbol of the London club.
Achievements of Wenger in the “Arsenal”
3 Premier League titles
7 Cups of England
7 League Cups
1 season without defeats
For all the years in the “Arsenal” about Wenger came a lot of jokes and memes. One of the most famous – about the “eternity” of the French coach: football fans did not believe that he would ever leave the club. Also in 22 years, many theories about the connection of Arsenal with the number “4” appeared, because the team too often stopped a step from the medals in the tournaments.
In addition, in social networks often joked over the classic winter dress Wenger – too long jacket.
To the care of the coach, “Arsenal” has prepared a roller-tribute with the most striking moments of the team for the last 22 years.

22 years, 10 major trophies and over 800 games. In a social media era where criticism and derision is tossed around like confetti, Arsene Wenger leaves with his head held high as a true Arsenal legend. We won’t see one man manage one club for over 2 decades ever again.👏👏
