thumbnail Hello,

The Arsenal boss will take charge of his 1000th match in charge of the Gunners when his side face Chelsea on Saturday and the tributes are still pouring in

KENNY DALGLISH
"In the last few years, people have started to take him for granted, but what he has achieved has been remarkable."


DAVID DEIN
"He has transformed the club, revolutionised the club. Whenever he leaves he will leave behind a phenomenal state-of-the-art training facility, a wonderful stadium, a very good squad and a legacy of what he's won."

SIR CHIPS KESWICK
“I think more important than the number is what he's done for Arsenal and actually for world football. He has made it back into the beautiful game, which it's often called but seldom achieved. I think that is the great achievement."


THOMAS VERMAELEN
"Everybody wants him to stay as long as he can. He's been incredible with what he's done for this club and for the players as well. We would be really happy to see him signing on for a few more years."




SIR ALEX FERGUSON
"I congratulate Arsene in reaching this momentous landmark. I always enjoy watching Arsene's sides – Arsenal play the right way. He has created a permanent legacy during his 1000 matches with the club."


THIERRY HENRY
"To reach 1000 games for one club is a historic achievement, but not a surprising one. He is one of the very best managers in the modern game."

CESC FABREGAS
"I just want to say congratulations. You made such a big impact on so many players’ careers, especially on mine. I owe you everything."


PATRICK VIEIRA
"What was impressive with Arsene is I would go in his office really upset wanting to make a point. I knew I was right, so my ideas were clear about what I wanted to tell him. When I came out, it was always him who was right!"

JOSE MOURINHO
"The tribute is to say I believe that any one of us, we would love to have the same privilege with our clubs. I admire him and I admire Arsenal."


HARRY REDKNAPP
"To reach 1,000 games in charge of the same club is a fantastic achievement - I don't think we'll see that happen again in the Premier League. 1,000 games at one club is incredible."
