Wenger's legacy at Arsenal 'untouchable' - Henry

Wenger's legacy at Arsenal 'untouchable' - Henry

Alex Ferguson's all-powerful Manchester United side won the title that season and many doubted whether a sophisticated European coach, let alone a Frenchman with little playing pedigree, could master the hurly-burly of the English game. "The 98 team was wonderful". He tried to play good football, play creative football and offensive football. But then came another pointer from Gazidis that paved the way for a more risky appointment such as Eddie Howe, Sean Dyche or even Patrick Vieira.

In what was probably the high point of his long reign, Wenger guided the Gunners through the 2003-04 league season undefeated.

The former Super Eagles captain made his debut for Gunner against Sheffield United in the FA Cup and went on to win two Premier League and two FA Cup titles during his time with the London club.

Europe always evaded him, a 2006 Champions League final defeat by Barcelona as close as he got.

But it all went horribly wrong and the succession plan was quickly exposed as a convenient cover story, with it subsequently emerging that Moyes was actually the club's sixth choice behind Jose Mourinho, Pep Guardiola, Carlo Ancelotti, Jurgen Klopp and Diego Simeone. I managed the club with full commitment and integrity. "I did not expect it, he will have his reasons, it is a weird one for me". "It's a sad feeling right now", he said. The Premier League is the Premier League now because of Arsene Wenger and what he has done, his vision and respect for football. Left the club in 2007 having made almost 250 appearances in seven years.

That polarized fans and created a somewhat-poisonous atmosphere around the club, and Wenger, who often cut a forlorn and tense figure on the sidelines, seemed to acknowledge as much in making a plea for unity in his statement.

Wenger took over in October 1996 as Arsenal's first foreign manager on the back of successes at Monaco and a stint in charge of Japanese club Grampus Eight.

Wenger revolutionised the style of play in England, how professional footballers trained and even minor details such as an athlete's diet and the architecture of Arsenal's dressing room. Indeed, Arsenal is owned by an American whose company also controls American sports teams including the Denver Nuggets of the N.B.A. and the Los Angeles Rams of the N.F.L. "The foundations of this club have never been stronger and this gives me great confidence as we begin to chart the path ahead".

Henry sparked speculation that he could succeed Wenger in February when he conceded managing Arsenal would "be a dream" of his.

The 68 year old will walk away leaving Arsenal in their state of the art Emirates Stadium - an arena he virtually designed - but he will leave a massive hole to fill for a club he virtually ran single-handed.

"He was fine when we were talking about how the kids were doing, stuff like that", Wright told the BBC.
