Arsene Wenger celebrates his 18th anniversary as Arsenal manager today.

The then-unknown Frenchman took over at the club on 1 October 1996, replacing Bruce Rioch, who is still largely unknown.

It was been 18 years of highs and lows for Wenger with the Gunners, from masterminding the unbeaten 'Invincibles' in 2004, to overseeing the devastating 8-2 defeat by Manchester United in 2011.

He may be nearing his 20th year at Arsenal, but there is still plenty Wenger has not done as manager of the north London side.
