Arsene Wenger ended his 22-year reign as Arsenal boss at the end of the 2017/18 season.

Rendering a service only a few managers in football history have achieved.

Despite an unimpressive end to his tenure with the Gunners, Arsene Wenger will go down in history as one of the greatest Premier League managers.

The Frenchman guided Arsenal to three Premier League titles, seven FA Cups and seven Community Shields during his reign.

While Wenger will be remembered as a top manager, he is also famous for his battles with his coat.

During the colder months of the season, Wenger would often wear a huge Arsenal coat.

Wenger often wear the coat on mid-way during matches and watching him try to do up his zip often brings laughter to fans.

Now, after leaving Arsenal, Wenger has finally opened up on his battle with his coat:

Arsene

“Erm yes, in fact yes I improved in that.

“Yes, yes I was conscious because it was too long and sometimes it didn’t work and I struggled a lot.

“But in the end because people were showing it I was conscious I was under scrutiny.”

Unai Emery replaced Arsene Wenger at the Emirates, with many fans then ot pleased with the choice of Emery.

But since taking over as Arsenal boss, Unai Emery appears to be getting Arsenal back to their best.

After loses in his first two games in charge( against Chelsea and Manchester City), Emery has not lost a single game with Arsenal, going undefeated for 10 Premier League games in a row.

Emery’s pitch-side manner has also been compared to Wenger’s who would:

“Just sit there, trying to do the zip up on his coat!”

With Arsenal occupying the fifth spot on the EPL table, with 24 points (8 points adrift league leader, Manchester City), there are indications that the Gunners could leap frog into the Champions League spot that has eluded them in the last two seasons.
