Arsene Wenger has gone on to win three league titles and six FA cups in a lengthy reign at Arsenal following his arrival in 1996.
A disappointing 2016/17 campaign has led some to believe that this might just be Wenger’s final season as the Gunners’ boss.
However, rumours have continued to suggest that the 67-year-old is likely to keep his role regardless of how this season finishes.
Either way, it is worth noting that it has now been almost 21 years since Wenger was unveiled as the new Arsenal manager after leaving Japan.
And below is a classic TV clip from that day in September 1996 when the lanky Frenchman first took on the job he has now held for decades.
