Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger will be remembered most fondly for offering up some of the most fantastic football England has ever seen. He built on the good work of George Graham and then went on to forge his own title-winning side, with numerous domestic honours scattered throughout the early years.
But there was more to Wenger’s players than just Thierry Henry or Cesc Fabregas. While not all of the following mentioned were bought by Wenger, they all experienced highs in their career under the management of the Frenchman.
Such was the quality of the early Premier League teams at Arsenal under Wenger, it’s always easy to forget some of the names who helped to make a notable difference. Even more so, these barren years should not take away from some of the excellent acquisitions he has made.
