The Biggest Talking Point From Arsenal v Reading? Arsene Wenger’s New Coat

Arsene Wenger turned 68 last week and we have a funny feeling we know what his present was.

The Arsenal manager saw his birthday on Saturday spoiled somewhat by his side failing to beat Middlesbrough at home in the Premier League, with the newly promoted side stubbornly holding out in a 0-0 draw.

But judging by his attire during this evening’s EFL Cup tie against Reading at the Emirates, one of Wenger’s nearest and dearest went out of their way to buy him a new jacket.

Famously, the Frenchman has worn a variation of a long, black zip-up coat during his two decades prowling the touchline as Gunners boss, and often struggled when it came to fastening it up.

But all of those issues appear to be in the past, as Wenger showed off his snazzy new red and grey number tonight – much to the delight of Arsenal fans:

Well done, Arsene! Personally, we think the purchase was long overdue!
