Having won numerous trophies, and led the Invincibles to an unprecedented unbeaten league season in 2003-04, Wenger then had to help the Gunners through the next stage of their development when they moved from Highbury to the Emirates, a move that was followed by a nine-year trophy drought. Despite the financial constraints he faced, he still managed to keep the club playing in the Champions League year after year while remaining true to his philosophy of how the game should be played. Some began to question whether he had been left behind, despite picking up back-to-back FA Cups in 2014 and 2015, and from some quarters calls grew for him to retire.
Now, in this updated edition of John Cross's acclaimed biography, the author provides a compelling account of the man and his methods. He assesses the scale of Wenger's achievements, as he closes in on 20 years in charge of Arsenal, and provides the most comprehensive portrait of the Frenchman ever published.
