Having been appointed way back in 1996 of course, the sheer fact that Arsene Wenger is still manager of Arsenal is something truly incredible to behold in the modern era.
The likes of both he and Sir Alex Ferguson will probably never be seen again given the fickle nature of the modern-day game and it’s fair to say that the Frenchman has overseen the good, the bad and the ugly during all those years in charge of the Gunners.
With his Gunners career now being able to be split right down the middle with an incredibly successful first half and a disappointing second, it mustn’t be understated that Wenger oversaw the club’s transition from Highbury to Emirates Stadium while keeping Arsenal competitive and in the Champions League which is a fact that may only be appreciated more when he retires.
Winning two back-to-back FA Cup’s in the last two seasons of course, Wenger has managed to finally get his hands on silverware once again but his critics claim he should’ve broke the bank to really build upon the promising team he already has at his disposal in the transfer market this past summer.
Never one to get too carried away with transfer windows, Wenger has always remained a placid and largely laid-back kind of character with plenty of former players such as Ian Wright and Martin Keown claiming he was never one to rant and rave a la Sir Alex Ferguson in the dressing room.
Given his demeanour and personality, Wenger has also largely stood for no nonsense during his time in charge of the Gunners who on the whole, don’t get involved in much controversy nowadays although Wojciech Szczesny and Jack Wilshere’s smoking antics have proved a test of the manager and respective players’ relationships.
That said, we’ve dig through the archives today to devise a list of the five most outrageous scandals to hit the Gunners in the modern era.
