Over the years, he has committed several cardinal sins while at the helm of the Gunners, and below we’re highlighting his five biggest crimes since taking over back in 1996.


Not signing Zlatan

Way back in the year 2000, a skinny Swedish kid by the name of Zlatan Ibrahimovic sat in Wenger’s office, dumbfounded as to why he was only being offered a trial rather than a contract. Then at Malmo, Ibrahimovic informed Wenger that he didn’t do trials and signed for Dutch giants Ajax instead. Wenger has since stated his regret in not springing for Zlatan, and accepts that his skill and profile could have gone some way into cutting that nine-year spell of winning nothing in half.
