Who features in the Wenger's most frequently named players' starting XI?
Friday 30 May 2014
Arsene Wenger has reportedly agreed a new contract that will see him remain manager of Arsenal until 2017.
The 64-year-old Frenchman will enter his 19th season in charge of the Gunners with an announcement of the deal expected to come from the club as early as Saturday, following the FA Cup success that ended the club’s nine-year barren spell for a trophy.

Wenger also guided the side to Champions League qualification, meaning they will take part in Europe’s elite competition for the 17th straight season under Wenger. Following Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement last summer, Wenger is now the most experienced manager in the English Football League by some margin – Exeter’s Paul Tisdale is a distant second having been in charge for six years.
Over his 18 years in charge, Wenger has seen a number of great players go in and out of the club, with names such as Tony Adams, Dennis Bergkamp and Thierry Henry work under the leadership of the man dubbed “The Professor”.
