Arsene Wenger's decade at Arsenal
Highbury and the Emirates Stadium
And the 57-year-old's vision for Arsenal extends beyond the pitch.

When he arrived he was appalled by the club's rented training facilities. The 23m sale of Anelka to Real Madrid in 1999 more than funded the development of the space-age complex at London Colney where the Gunners are now put through their paces.

But today, that investment is overshadowed by the sparkling new stadium Wenger's ambition helped achieve at a cost of 390m.

His passion for the project, allied to the on-pitch success, persuaded the board to take the plunge and help Wenger lead the Gunners into a new era at a 60,000-seat home.
