Arsene Wenger is one of the most respected men in the world of Football. He has been instrumental in revolutionizing English football, and his Arsenal teams of the 1990’s and 2000’s were the teams to beat. He is Arsenal’s most successful manager and he remained at the North London club for the best part of last two decades.

Recently, he was pictured strolling in London, during the coronavirus pandemic. He was wearing the navy blue shorts from Arsenal’s 2016-17 kit, which was the last time they won a trophy.

Wenger’s fashion sense has never been in question, as he has been one of the sharpest dressed men in Football. After retirement, and despite currently being aged 70, he can still rock a pair of shorts, while also showing where his allegiance lies. 

And to top it off, he had also worn a cap, which had “Take It Easier” written on it. This was a message that could be effectively used in the current, coronavirus-hit world. It is important to note that Arsene Wenger is 70 years old, which makes him a part of the demographic that is the most affected by coronavirus.

He recently appeared in an educational video, alongside former Tottenham manager, Mauricio Pochettino and other stars. The video was released by FIFA, regarding the precautionary measures that need to be taken in order to reduce the spread of the virus.

On Feb 19th, in an interview with Talksport, Wenger said that “I believe that the priority for the Premier League is to finish the season. That could mean pushing the fixtures back until the end of June, but they have to do that”.

Arsenal remains in contention to win the FA Cup this season. Wenger, even in his new role as FIFA’s Chief of Global Football Development, would be rooting for the Gunners to bring their first piece of silverware post his retirement. Gunners fans would definitely be pleased to know that their former manager still has their back.
