On Saturday Arsene Wenger will have been in charge of Arsenal for 20 years.
That’s two decades at a club with the same first five letters as his name.

Winger Alex Iwobi has been telling Newsbeat that he’d love to take his boss on at FIFA to celebrate the milestone.

He isn’t giving much else away about what the players have planned which could involve “a few party hats and drinks”.
But the 20-year-old says Alexis Sanchez jumping out of a cake might be a step too far.

“I don’t know,” he tells Newsbeat. “I’d be surprised if he has played FIFA but if he has then that’s banter.
“I’d like to take him on, yeah.

“Even if we are planning something else to celebrate, we might want to keep it a surprise.

“I’m not really a party hat kind of guy, but if I have to then I’ll wear one.”

Alex, who was born in Nigeria but moved to England when he was four, says it’s an honour playing under Wenger.

“He’s experienced, he knows about the Premier League, he knows about everything.

“It’s such a great feeling to work for him, especially when he’s been at the club for 20 years and has worked with some class players.

“To be involved with that is just crazy. He’s completely relaxed.

“He’s a calm guy, an approachable guy and he knows what’s best for you.”
