Arsene Wenger returns to Arsenal since 2018 exit (Video)

Arsene Wenger has returned to the Emirates Stadium for the first time since departing as Arsenal’s manager in 2018.

Wenger, 73, is in the crowd to watch Arsenal’s Premier League match against West Ham United on Boxing Day.

Wenger, who managed Arsenal from 1996 to 2018, had previously said he had no plans to watch his old side in action.

The 73-year-old stepped down from the role in the summer of 2018.

He was initially replaced by Unai Emery, before Mikel Arteta was appointed in December 2019.

Arsenal produced a stunning second-half comeback to move seven points clear at the top of the Premier League with a 3-1 win over West Ham.

On a night when former Gunners boss Arsene Wenger returned to the Emirates Stadium for the first time since leaving the club in 2018.

Wenger, who spent 22 years at Arsenal, had not hidden the fact that he found his Arsenal departure difficult and insisted he didn’t have any plans to return to watch his former side.

However, FIFA’s chief of global football development was back, and it looked like his former side were heading for a difficult night when they went behind to Said Benrahma’s penalty after William Saliba brought down Jarrod Bowen inside the box (27).

Wenger was relieved when two goals in five minutes from Bukayo Saka (53) and Gabriel Martinelli (58) brought us all smiles after the break, and Eddie Nketiah, who led the line for Arsenal in the absence of Gabriel Jesus, finished off a brilliant night for Mikel Arteta’s side (69).

Arsenal moves seven points clear of Newcastle, who beat Leicester 3-0 earlier on Boxing Day, while Man City can respond when they travel to Leeds on Wednesday. Meanwhile, West Ham, which suffered its fourth straight loss, remained 16th in the league.
