It has already been a week since Arsène Wenger announced he would be stepping down as Arsenal manager at the end of the season.
The 68-year-old will end a near 22-year reign at the Premier League club, having been appointed Gunners manager back in October 1996.
He will depart the Emirates Stadium upon the conclusion of the current 2017-18 campaign, a year before his contract was due to expire.
Wenger, who previously managed Nancy, AS Monaco and Nagoya Grampus, has won 17 honours at Arsenal – three Premier League titles, seven FA Cups and seven FA Community Shields.
The Premier League’s longest-serving manager, having managed a record 823 games, Wenger led Arsenal through the entire 2003-04 league campaign unbeaten, as his ‘Invincibles’ side went 49 games unbeaten.
