While you might hate him because you support rival football clubs, or you may argue that he is past his prime, there are moments when Arsene’s Arsenal come up with some magical performances, proving to a genuine football fan that Arsene Wenger is a genius in his own right.

So much so that it is now a tradition.

Happy birthday, Arsene Wenger! Thank you for the entertaining football.
