Arsene Wenger left Arsenal on a somewhat sour note. While his farewell was a fitting 5-0 win at home to Burnley in which the players reminded all of why fans grew to love the Frenchman so much, a sixth placed finish and a trophyless season left the Gunners faithful demanding change.
Since his departure though, it’s evident the man is still loved amongst all who support the North Londoners. He regularly gets the attention he rightly deserves when appearing as a pundit on beIN sports or making time for journalists and fans when the opportunity arises.
Little is known about Wenger’s next professional venture, and there were fears he’d drop out of football completely and lose touch with the game. The ex-Arsenal manager once said “retirement is dying” when speaking about football keeping him on his feet for so many years and how hard it would be to walk away.

He remains jobless, in terms of looking for a team to manage, but he’s certainly is no slouch, having recently invested in tech company PlayerMaker.
Most recently though, an image has appeared on social media showing Arsene Wenger playing in a charity match with Real Madrid legend and manager Zinedine Zidane. Many might have forgotten that Wenger had a career as a player, and the picture, while it doesn’t give too much away, suggests he may still have some of his class on the pitch.
Arsenal fans enjoyed the photo that appeared to display Wenger dribbling away from Zidane who looks to be trying to keep a hold of the Gunners legend…
