Arsene Wenger, who spent 22-year-old in North London, was renowned for having issues with the zip on his trademark extremely long bench coats.

The 69-year-old had a new version of the jacket every season and notoriously struggled with the zip time-after-time.

The coats, which ended around his knee, were specifically designed for the Arsenal gaffer to keep him warm, however, maybe they should have used Velcro instead of a zip.

Social media users often ripped into the Frenchman for his failure to do such a simple task and beIN Sports have now confronted him on the issue.

"Yes, in fact I improved in that," Wenger told presenter Richard Keys.

"I was conscious of that! They are too long and sometimes the zip didn't work. I struggled a lot with that.

"But, in the end, because people were showing it I was conscious that I was under scrutiny when doing it!"

Meanwhile, Wenger has been heavily linked with the AC Milan job.

The 69-year-old is 1/4 for the Milan job as current gaffer, and former player, Gennaro Gattuso is under pressure following a poor start to the season.

France Football reported earlier this month that the Italian giant's hierarchy weren't happy with Gattuso after spending over £150million on players in the summer, yet they already trail table-toppers Juventus by 13 points.

And with Ivan Gazidis, who was Arsenal chief during Wenger's spell in North London, now high up at the Milan club, it understood he wants to replace Gattuso with the Frenchman.

The former Italian international is even money to be the next manager to leave their post, closely followed by Bayern Munich boss Niko Kovac (3/1), who is also under immense pressure.

Zinedine Zidane is understood to be frontrunner for that job as he is still searching for a route back into management.
