Arsenal fans have taken to Twitter to celebrate the 70th birthday of legendary manager Arsene Wenger.
The Frenchman spent 22 seasons with the north London club, winning three Premier League trophies and seven FA Cups (via Transfermarkt).
His last few years at the club didn’t end in such celebratory fashion with Wenger under pressure from fans towards the end of his reign (via CNN).
However, in May 2004, the 70-year-old achieved footballing immortality when the north London giants went the 2003/2004 Premier League season unbeaten.
The feat was made all the more magnificent as Wenger had almost two years earlier, in the 2002/2003 season, said that he thought his team could go an entire season without losing (via The Guardian).
After all of Wenger’s achievements at the club, fans took to Twitter to celebrate his 70th birthday despite his acrimonious departure from the club.
Here is a selection of tweets from the Emirates Stadium faithful:
Happy Birthday to one of the greatest people in football ♥️
