Arsene Wenger has announced he is to step down as Arsenal manager at the end of the season.

The footballing and sporting world have been stunned today with the news coming out of north London as The Gunners prepare to hire their first manager since 1996.

It's been a long managerial reign for the Frenchman, with plenty of highs, and plenty of lows.

If you were to split Wenger's 22-year reign at Arsenal in half, you'd say the first half was the very high, and the second half was the very low.

A few Premier League titles, one unbeaten season, one Champions League final, and numerous FA Cups, were followed by constant battles for top four, and 10 years without a single trophy.

Although the Arsenal fans have slowly turned from 'Arsene who?' to 'Wenger Out', one thing is for sure, they will all come together to pay their respects to Wenger.

Although there have been trophies and unbeaten seasons, one of the biggest accomplishments from Wenger was overlooking the move from Highbury to the Emirates Stadium.

Not only was it vital for Arsenal to compete financially and with the likes of Manchester United, it also gave them a bigger home, going from 38,419 to 59,867.

Following the groundbreaking announcement, Press Association Sport have taken a look back at the Frenchman’s reign in numbers.
