PICTURE: Arsenal's tribute to Arsene Wenger on 18 years in charge

Arsene Wenger In Emirates Press Conference 2

Arsene Wenger took charge of Arsenal 18-years-ago today.

Arsenal have offered a tribute to manager Arsene Wenger, as he reaches 18 years in charge of the club today.

The club posted their tribute to Wenger on Instagram, with the Frenchman now the longest serving boss in English football after Sir Alex Ferguson retired as boss of Manchester United.

There have been plenty of ups and downs for the Gunners under Wenger, with his team dominating in the early 2000s before enduring a trophy drought which plagued the club from 2005 up until the FA Cup triumph of last season.

Wenger’s career at the club has seen him win three Premier League titles and five FA Cups and he’ll still be determined to try and match Fergie’s feat of winning the Champions League with the Gunners before he retires.

The boss still has a long way to go before he breaks Fergie’s longevity record in the game, but he’s well on his way having only just signed a new three-year deal in the summer.
