Arsene Wenger: Best Arsenal moments

Published Add your comment

Football News

Arsenal chief executive Ivan Gazidis has revealed the club are ready to offer Arsene Wenger a new long-term deal.

The Frenchman is the longest-serving - and most successful - coach in the club's history, and despite the recent trophy drought the Gunners are eager to tie down a manager once considered the best in the world.

But while the 62-year-old boss insists there's no rush - he still has two years to run on his current deal - it's hard to imagine Wenger anywhere other than the Emirates Stadium.

Since joining the north London club in 1996, Wenger has won three Premier League titles, four FA Cups and reached the Champions League final.

There's been plenty of highs, and a couple of lows, and there's sure to be more along the way, especially if he puts pen to paper on a new contract.

With that in mind, GMF looks back at the great man's best moments in the Arsenal dugout so far.

Wenger's first match - 12 October 1996

Wenger joined the club on 30 September 1996 following the departure of Bruce Rioch, and alongside long-time assistant Pat Rice, the new Gunners boss guided his team to a 2-0 victory over Blackburn.


First Premier League title - 1998

In his second season, Wenger guided Arsenal to a famous league and cup double, making up a 12-point deficit on Manchester United to win the club's first ever Premier League title.


Wenger signs Thierry Henry - 1999

Arsene Wenger's greatest signing, Thierry Henry went on to become the club's highest ever goalscorer and a Premier League legend.


Second Premier League title - 2002

Another title, and another league and cup double for Wenger. The Frenchman was becoming a real pain for Sir Alex Ferguson as the Gunners boss had successfully established Arsenal as England's most formidable team.


The Invincibles - 2004

Wenger's greatest achievement is undoubtedly Arsenal's unbeaten 2003/04 season. 38 league games and zero defeats makes this team one of, if not the, greatest of all-time.


Kolo Toure celebrates Invincible season - 2004

Arsene Wenger watches on as Kolo Toure celebrates victory over Leicester City, securing the unbeaten season and handing Wenger, and Arsenal, their third Premier League title.


Fourth FA Cup win - 2005

The last time the Gunners boss got his hands on some silverware. A penalty shootout win over Manchester United was enough to clinch the trophy.


Victory over Barcelona - 2011

Arsenal entertained the best team in the world, complete with Lionel Messi, but Arsene Wenger's side engineered a famous Champions League victory, running out 2-1 winners at the Emirates Stadium.
