This very week, Arsene Wenger officially became the longest-serving manager in Premier League history.

As of Monday, Wenger has outlasted the 7,582 days that Sir Alex Ferguson spent in charge of Manchester United in the Top Flight™, though of course the Scot did spent over five years at the United helm before football began in 1992.

Still, at the grand old age of 67, Wenger continues to look the part, donning a choice pair of custom all-red Puma trainers (complete with Arsenal livery) for Wednesday’s friendly against Bayern Munich in Shanghai.

The Frenchman was spotted wearing his snazzy new pumps while sat in the dugout next to the latest addition to his coaching staff, one Jens Lehmann…

Check those creepers out…

Coming soon to an Arsenal Fan TV rant near you.

Love Wenger or loathe him enough to spend hundreds of pounds on a protest plane banner, you simply can’t argue that the man has panache coming out of his ears.

    Well, that certainly is some Fast Fashion.

    You could even say Arsene has a New Life. Of course, People Are People so there will be Blasphemous Rumours.

    I’m sure he’ll Shake The Disease and Get The Balance Right next season.

    Having his home games at the Emirates, I’m certain he’ll Enjoy The Silence. After all, Everything Counts when it comes to home support.

    But will he be able to hold on to Sanchez? It’s A Question Of Time before we discover if Arsenal are Stripped of their talisman. What about Ozil? Does he have what it takes, or is he really that Useless off the ball?

    We will have to wait and see what the owners deem fit as the Policy Of Truth regarding big money transfers.

    And if next season doesn’t deliver, who will be Behind The Wheel when Wenger retires?

    Surely they’ll be looking in the Barrel Of A Gun.
