Insane stat shows Arsenal boss has been around forever

With almost 20 years at Arsenal’s helm, Arsene Wenger is undoubtedly the longest tenured manager in the Premier League. But a quick glance at how that compares to his contemporaries makes his time at Arsenal even more impressive.

According to the Metro, Wenger has been the boss at Emirates Stadium for 6,934 days: a mark that most notably is more than every other current Premier League manager combined.

Whether it’s a testament to how good Wenger is, how much faith the Arsenal ownership has in him or just how bad the other managers are at keeping their own jobs, there’s little doubt that it’s a truly remarkable feat.

Wenger is also Arsenal’s all-time leading manager in several significant categories: Most games, highest winning percentage, and most wins.

The main knock on Wenger’s tenure, however, has been his consistent failure to capture the Premier League or take Arsenal far enough in a major UEFA tournament.

Since he was first hired in 1996, Arsene Wenger has three Premier League titles (with the most recent one coming in the 2003-2004) season.

Though Wenger has had a measure of success in the FA Cup Final and FA Community Shield game, he has never won the League Cup, Europa League or the Champions League.
