Arsene Wenger will celebrate his 20th anniversary as Arsenal manager on Saturday – and fans have taken the opportunity to praise the Frenchman on Twitter.

The Gunners boss officially assumed the Arsenal managers job on the 1st October 1996 after leaving Japanese club Nagoya Grampus.

Wenger has won three Premier League titles, six FA Cups and six community shields in his time in north London.

Despite last winning a league title in 2004, the former Monaco boss is widely regarded as one of the best managers in world football.

Supporters on social took the opportunity to thank the Arsenal boss for all his work over the past two decades.

Here is a selection of the messages on Twitter:

Wenger is the longest serving manager in the Premier League but has faced criticism in recent years after failing to hit the heights of the early part of his managerial reign with Arsenal.

The 66-year-old has recently stated that he would like to manage the England national team one day, leading to speculation regarding his long-term future at Arsenal.

Wenger’s side have enjoyed a strong start to the season though, picking up 13 points from their first six games.

Wenger will be hoping his side can collect their fifth win in five games outings on Sunday against Burnley and guide his side up the table.

In other Arsenal news, Gunners fans were delighted on Twitter with winger Theo Walcott after his performance against Basel on Wednesday evening.
