Arsene Wenger has been honored by his colleagues for his 22-year reign as manager of Arsenal.

The 69-year-old Frenchman, who left the club in May, was presented with the League Managers & # 39; Association (LMA) Service to Football Award by British manager Gareth Southgate at dinner on Thursday night at Wembley Stadium.

LMA president Howard Wilkinson said: "Arsene's contribution to English football has been extremely important for the progress of the national game since he arrived at Arsenal Football Club in 1996.

"It is our privilege to award him the LMA Service to Football Award in recognition of his great achievements.

"On behalf of his colleagues in the LMA, I thank him for his dedication to the profession and hope that he will continue to influence the game for many years to come."

Wenger accompanied the Gunners to three Premier League titles, the last of them in 2003-04 without losing a single game, and seven FA Cups and twice won the Double.

LMA chief executive Richard Bevan said, "The LMA is proud to recognize it The remarkable career of Arsene in football management.

"The role of the football manager has changed unrecognizably since Arsene's first game in 1996 in Highbury, but his big influence on the game of the last 22 years means he really deserves the admiration of his fellow practitioners in football."

The technical director of Dan Soccer, the technical director of the technical assistant, also received a special prize from FA CEO Martin Glenn, who prepared for a similar position at Brighton.
