I never understood why when Arsene Wenger left Arsenal, he wasn’t picked up. If anyone should have a seat in the club’s boardroom, this is it.

He had a lot to offer. He still does. He is one of the sport’s great visionaries and life leaders and they don’t get along very often.

Wenger practically built Emirates Stadium, thanks to his success, and yet he never returned from there. If the Arsenal is to be seen as one large family, it is right and appropriate that the former head of that family should return to the table.

It never sat right with me that he was not involved in any capacity after dedicating 22 years of his life to the club. Wenger is still a forward-thinking football player and is currently working for FIFA, developing the global game.

If he has time to take it up and is interested in the idea, Arsenal should welcome him with open arms.

Mikel Arteta says he wants her back. We do not know whether he is in the boardroom, as a consultant or just that the Arsenal manager wants his former boss to be present on match days.

But reuniting Wenger with Arsenal, bringing him home, bringing him to games and visiting the training ground, can only be a good thing.

His love for the club never left him. it will never happen. Anyone lucky enough to be associated with Arsenal will tell you that this is an affection that stays with you for the rest of your life.
