Retired Arsene Wenger Won A Trophy Before Tottenham And Everyone Thinks It's Hilarious

Arsene Wenger managed the World XI to Soccer Aid glory against England on Sunday evening and everyone's taken their chance to make the exact same joke.


Wenger is regarded as the best manager in Arsenal history and won three Premier League titles and seven FA Cups during his 22 year spell in north London.

He officially stepped away from management in 2018, but returned to the dugout one more time at the London Stadium.

After a 2-2 draw in normal time, the game was decided on penalties and Lee Mack smashed home the winner for the Rest Of The World.

It means Wenger has another medal in his cabinet and it also means he came out of retirement to win a trophy before Arsenal's bitter rivals Tottenham Hotspur.

Tottenham's last major honour came in 2008 when they won the League Cup and it's been a barren 14 years since.

They've finished above Arsenal in the last six seasons, but the Gunners have two FA Cup triumphs in that period.

Harry Redknapp was in the Three Lions dugout and he's a former Tottenham manager. It just gets better and better.

Fans were all saying the same thing at full-time and used Soccer Aid as another way to troll Spurs.

One said: "Arsene Wenger left Arsenal 5 years ago. Has spent 5 years not managing. Came out of retirement to manage 1 game and still won a trophy before Tottenham."

Another tweeted: "Arsene Wenger has won more trophies than Tottenham this season."

Someone commented: "Arsene Wenger bettering Harry Redknapp. It’s the history of the Tottenham."

While a fourth put: "Arsene Wenger still winning trophies after coaching career with Arsenal after how many years and Tottenham Hotspur haven't won one since God knows when, we are gigantic."

Soccer Aid always brings the laughs and one incident in particular involved Jamie Carragher and Usian Bolt.

Liverpool legend Carragher was tasked with tracking the Jamaican sprinting icon and had an almighty challenge on his hands.

Early on, a ball was lofted over to Bolt and he latched onto the pass. Carragher wasn't the quickest in his prime and managed to clear his lines after Bolt miscontrolled the ball.

The Sky Sports pundit was picked up mouthing 'f**king hell' seconds later.
