The Frenchman played a key part in Arsenal’s invincibles side.
Arsenal legend Robert Pires thinks his former side still have what it takes to win the Premier League title, although they don’t have the quality to dominate like the famous invincibles side did in the 2003/2004 season, the Daily Mirror reports.

The former winger famously helped the Gunners go unbeaten and win the Premier League title comfortably.
Unfortunately, Arsene Wenger’s current side aren’t reaching similar heights and currently sixth in table after drawing 2-2 with Hull City on Saturday.
Pires believes that the current team don’t have the strength of previous Arsenal sides’ but he still thinks it’s possible for them to challenge Chelsea and Manchester City for the title.
He said to Press Association Sport: “The current squad lacks the physical power the Invincibles team had in players like Sol Campbell, (Patrick) Vieira, Gilberto Silva and Thierry Henry.
“But in football, everything is possible. They have (the points gap) with Chelsea, but we can still win the league.”
Following a poor start to the season, Wenger is starting to face pressure from a section of the club’s supporters but Pires hopes that the majority of fans will back the veteran French boss.
“I understand that the fans want to win the trophy,” the 40-year-old said.
“But do not forget that Wenger built the Arsenal team.
“Of course, it is important to win the title. But I always believe in Wenger and in the team.”
