Playing Career

Arsene Wenger was a midfielder in his playing days. Playing around clubs in France, his senior career lasted for over 12 years from 1969 to 1981.

He is described as a player who had a commanding presence on and off the field. Though his game lacked pace, he made up for it through his ability to guard the ball and dribbling skills.

Managerial Career

Wenger began his managerial career at Nancy in 1984 where he stayed for three years before being sacked in 1987.

He then joined AS Monaco later that year and won the league championship in 1988.

In 1991, Wenger guided Monaco to victory in the Coupe de France, but their failure to regain the league title in later seasons led to his departure from the club in 1994.

He spent a stint in Japan after being poached by Nagoya Grampus. Wenger coached Nagoya Grampus to win the Emperor’s Cup and Japanese Super Cup.

The Frenchman was offered the manager’s role at Arsenal in 1996 and he took it up. In 1998, led the Gunners to a Premier League and FA Cup double.

He replicated the same success in 2002, by winning another league and cup double in 2002. In 2003, he retained the FA Cup.

In 2004, Wenger managed Arsenal to an undefeated domestic league season, with a squad dubbed as “The Invincibles” a feat last accomplished by Preston North End, 115 years previously and still unmatched in the Premier League era.

Arsenal eclipsed Nottingham Forest’s record of going unbeaten for 42 league matches by going 49 matches unbeaten.

The club made their only appearance in a Champions League final in 2006 but lost to Barcelona.

What followed after that was a trophy drought for the Gunners which coincided with the club relocating to the Emirates Stadium from Highbury.

Wenger ended Arsenal’s trophy drought by bringing FA Cup success in 2014, 2015 and 2017, before stepping down a year later.
