PICS, VIDEOS & GIFS: The trouble with Arsene Wenger’s coat


Arsene Wenger’s coat seems to have become a bit of an internet hit.

Celebrating yet another zip failure during Arsenal’s FA Cup 3rd round replay against Swansea (see the final two GIFs in the Zip Trouble section), we put together our favourite Wenger coat-related media for your delectation.
