As the tributes for Arsene Wenger flood in ahead of his 1000th game as the manager of Arsenal, a rather bizarre story has emerged involving the Frenchman. According to a Bromley woman, who claims to be an ‘alien god’, she and Wenger were wed in a previous existence when she was Joan of Arc and he an heir to his country’s throne.

Wenger will take charge of the Gunners for the milestone occasion against Chelsea on Saturday knowing three points at Stamford Bridge will significantly reinforce his side’s prospects of winning the Premier League title.

The Gunners boss could be forgiven, however, for becoming a little distracted by this shocking revelation from his previous private life. But what do we know of these amazing claim?

Well, it is reported by the Bromley News Shopper that 53-year-old Stephany Cohen, who says she is a god of the Cat People from the Canis Major system, was wed to Wenger in the 15th century. And here is what she says…

"Mr Wenger and I were engaged in a previous life.

“We had a romance when I was Joan of Arc and he was the Dauphine of France.”

It was a romance that clearly did not end so well, with Cohen describing Wenger’s previous form to be a particularly stubborn man, much like he is now. This, says our alien deity, will cost Arsenal the chance to bring the title back to the Emirates Stadium this season. Gunners fans, you have been warned.

"He was the same man we know him to be today. Highly intelligent but very stubborn,” she added.

"His big problem is he never has a plan B. Arsenal will not win the Premier League this season because of that.

"Me and my spirit guides believe it will be Manchester City who will win the title."
