TalkSPORT presenter Natalie Sawyer certainly had her say during her 10am radio show with Jim White yesterday – with Sawyer declaring that Frenchman Arsene Wenger has left the biggest sporting legacy after his 22-year spell with Arsenal.
It would be ignorant to dismiss the achievements of Wenger during his time with the North London outfit – winning 476 of his 828 Premier League matches with the Gunners.
Winning 3 Premier League titles and 7 FA Cups, as well as 7 Community Shields (Transfermarkt), Wenger certainly left his mark on the English game and is regarded as one of the best managers in the history of football.
Will Arsenal pay £60m for Issa Diop?
Despite his success, many fans have been left disgruntled after Sawyer’s admission that the Frenchman has left the biggest sporting legacy – with one of her arguments being that Arsenal’s Invincibles have been left untouchable and that even Liverpool have recently failed to match that team’s incredible feat.
Many individuals took to Twitter, arguing that other managers (including a certain Scotsman nicknamed Fergie), have achieved bigger success than Wenger himself.

Is Natalie feeling ok, Alex Ferguson the greatest manager of our time

Wenger never won the CL.
Klopp was in 2 consecutive finals, winning 1. Klopp has/will have, more points in the last 2 seasons than Wenger ever did. Klopp transformed attacking football with effective defending, over the past 2 seasons. That’s a legacy that’s only begun.

Wenger revolutionised football, diet and training. Ferguson won trophies.
