The end of an era: Arsene Wenger leaves Arsenal

Roy Keane tackles Patrick Vieira during a Premeir League clash in 1999

Vieira has just entered his third season as manager of New York City FC, part of Manchester City's network, and it had looked for a while that the former Arsenal midfielder would one day replace Pep Guardiola. What he's achieved at Arsenal and in English football is huge. A likely candidate to leave the club permanently at the end of the campaign, Perez has been disappointed with the lack of chances in the starting eleven at Arsenal to prove his worth. This is the most successful period in Arsenal's history, the last 20 years. They won the league and FA cup double in 1998 and 2002. Wenger not only changed the landscape of Arsenal football club but also that of English football as a whole since arriving in 1996.

Here are the best XI of players brought to Arsenal by Wenger. Campbell was a Premier League victor in his first season at Highbury and again, invincibly so, in 2003-04. However, the second half of Wenger's reign has seen the side fail to reach such heights.

And the fans' frustration continued to grow as, even after loosening the purse strings to buy Mesut Ozil in 2013 and Alexis Sanchez a year later, Arsenal still failed to compete for the title or the Champions League. There are plenty of former players who played here who have potential and the intelligence and the knowledge to do it.

Arsenal, who are in the semi-finals of the Europa League and could still qualify for the Champions League through this, are now looking for a new boss. By 2012 and with Arsenal struggling to capture silverware, Wenger was saying that finishing in the top four - and therefore qualifying for the Champions League - was comparable to winning a trophy.

Arsenal's French manager Arsene Wenger holds the FA Cup trophy on the pitch after their win over Chelsea in the English FA Cup final football match between Arsenal and Chelsea at Wembley stadium in London on May 27, 2017. However, the only truly significant defensive addition that he made after Adams, Keown et al began to tire and eventually retire was to poach Sol Campbell from arch-rivals Spurs.

Wenger, who is now the longest serving manager in the English Premier League having been in charge since 1996, made his intention known via a shocking press statement on Friday. He was a centre-back with the speed of a full-back and it is arguable that it was his signature (allegedly at Dein's insistence), rather than those of Henry, Vieira and all the other attacking players, that was the single most significant one in Wenger's twenty years-plus at the club. Maybe in the last few months not everybody was happy with this result or that.
