Arsène Wenger was in the stands as Arsenal produced a rousing come-from-behind win over West Ham on Boxing Day in the Premier League.
Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta says club great Wenger “picked the right moment” to go back to Emirates Stadium as he saw them underline their title credentials with a 3-1 win at the Emirates Stadium.
It was the first time the legendary ex-Arsenal boss had returned to the club since he stepped down as their manager in 2018.
Arsène Wenger, who was the last Arsenal manager to win the title back in 2003-04, was treated to some champagne football by the current Arsenal players that would have impressed him.
“His presence is something that has to be very, very attached to this football club so thanks [to him] for doing that because it means a lot for everybody at the club,” said Arteta.
“Hopefully he is willing to spend more time with us and be around us because he is such an influence.”
