Seventeen years of Arsène Wenger captured in one infographic

Arsène Wenger took charge at Arsenal seventeen years ago today and the club have released this infographic to highlight his time in charge.

He had to wait almost two weeks for his first game, a 2-0 win over Blackburn Rovers, but few would argue he has transformed the club and also changed the culture of English football ever since.

In that time he has overseen Arsenal claim three Premier League titles, four FA Cups and a move from Highbury to the Emirates. Not to mention of course unearthing quality young players through an extensive scouting network and instilling a certain playing philosophy that has contributed to the improvement of the standing of the English game.

The club have been rightly proclaiming the many achievements of the Frenchman today and while he himself is probably more focused on the Champions League encounter with Napoli, his longevity is a testament to what he has achieved since pitching up in London in 1996.

Here are his seventeen years captured in one infographic.
