    Each member of the group played an integral role in Arsenal’s invincible era during the 2003-04 Premier League campaign.

    Wenger’s side went on an incredible run of 49 games unbeaten and they are still the only team in Prem history to achieve such a feat.

    The picture – which was posted on Instagram by Gilberto – also included Sky Sports presenter Geoff Shreeves.

    Everyone involved was in attendance at the launch of Dein’s autobiography – ‘Calling the Shots: How to Win in Football and in Life’.

    Also at the event were Thierry Henry, Ian Wright, Kolo Toure, Jens Lehmann and Lee Dixon.

    Each player took to the stage at the Cambridge Theatre in London to reflect on their time at Arsenal.

    Wenger – who managed the club for 22 years – spoke out about his departure in 2018 and why he has not returned since.

    He said: “I haven’t been there. I think after 22 years, I had arrived at the end of the road, and people wanted a change.

    “Then I must say, I was always loyal to the club, and turned many clubs down, because I felt my life was definitely linked to the club.

    “The club chose a different direction, that I understand completely.

    “And sometimes you need to change completely to have a new start and not me.

    “My presence there could have been a problem. So I thought I’d stay away completely, and give the club a chance to rebuild a new connection with a new manager.”
