Wenger signed Glenn Hoddle for AS Monaco in 1987.
Of course he was not just a Tottenham player. He spent four years abroad, playing for AS Monaco, before heading back to the UK to finish his career with Swindon Town and Chelsea.
Wenger actually signed him for Monaco in 1987 and was his manager throughout his spell at Monaco. Nowadays of course the two live on different parallels.
Hoddle is now intrinsically linked to Spurs while Wenger is Arsenal's most successful manager. But Hoddle, who played 490 times for Spurs, is in no doubt about the debt he owes the Arsenal legend.
He posted this Tweet earlier today on the Arsenal boss:
Arsene had such an impact on me personally and of course English football with all his expertise. #WatchWithHoddle— Glenn Hoddle (@GlennHoddle) March 15, 2015
Interestingly enough this comes in a week when Arsenal need to get one over on Monaco. They face the Ligue 1 side on Tuesday night, trailing 3-1 from the first leg at The Emirates, and both Hoddle and Wenger will be hoping the English club pull off the comeback.
