    While a third said: “Love to see Wenger in and around the club, having him available in any kind of capacity, just being there for the players, manager, whoever has a question he will only help and has everyone’s respect no matter who you are.”

    Wenger managed the Gunners for 22 years before stepping down at the end of the 2017-18 season.

    During his time in charge he became the first manager ever to lead a team through an entire Premier League campaign without losing a match.
