Arsene Wenger’s coat zip returns to haunt him on record-equalling night at Crystal Palace

810 Premier League league games and the Frenchman still can't do up his coat

Arsene Wenger has made some enemies down the years.

Sir Alex Ferguson, Jose Mourinho and Troopz from ArsenalFanTV have all gone to war with the Frenchman time and time again.

However, one nemesis rises above all as Wenger’s most feared opponent… the zip on his coat.

Even the mere mention of a zip sends a shiver down his spine

Fans have long had a laugh at the Arsenal gaffer’s endless battles with his own clothing and tonight they were provided with more ammunition.

The Sky Sports cameras cut to Wenger during his side’s visit to Crystal Palace and caught him struggling with his coat in trademark fashion…

Some things never change.

Tonight’s trip to Selburst Park is Wenger’s 810th Premier League game in charge — a tally that puts him level with Ferguson as the joint record-holder.

Thankfully, he seemed to have conquered his beast a few moments later…



Why not relieve the experienced manager’s greatest hits?

The legend goes that Arsenal will regain their status as genuine title contenders the day Wenger zips up his coat without any fuss.

Don’t hold your breath…
