Top 5 Best Arsenal Managers Ever

Since Unai Emery is currently in his first season with Arsenal, we are not considering his stat line.
Harry Bradshaw – Win Percentage Of 50.21%
One of the more prominent success stories in football, Harry Bradshaw was one of the early leaders for Arsenal.
The man never really had much of playing career but he found a lot of success as a manager. He was appointed into the head coaching position of Woolwich Arsenal in 1899.
Bradshaw had proved his worth with Burnley, leading them to the third spot of the England top-flight the previous season. He made his way over to the Highbury and signed plenty of quality footballers like Archie Cross, Percy Sands, Jimmy Jackson and Jimmy Ashcroft for Arsenal.
His brand of management was efficient and commanded a fluid form of play on the pitch. After several seasons of near-misses, Arsenal won promotion up to the first division in 1904 for the first time in the club’s history.
Bradshaw gave the North London club an identity of their own by signing eighteen of the twenty players in the squad. Unfortunately, the Scotsman could never lead the club to win the league title and eventually moved on to Fulham after his fifth season.
Thomas Mitchell – Win Percentage Of 51.11%
Thomas Mitchell is known as the first professional manager to have ever taken charge of Arsenal. He coached the club for only one season – 1897/98.
He reached the fifth spot of the second division and was dismissed by the end of the campaign.
Arsene Wenger – Win Percentage Of 57.25%
If there is one manager who has been the most successful in the history of Arsenal, it would be Arsene Wenger but we are looking at the list through win percentage only.
There might not be a need to introduce this man to most people since everyone has come to associate the man with this club. Wenger is notably the longest-serving manager in Gunners history with a track record of 57.25% winning run.
He won the Premier League title three times with Arsenal and the FA Cup a record seven times. More than just winning a fair share of trophies in the English top-flight, he had a major influence on the game of professional football.
He implemented a lot of changes to scouting, players’ training and diet regimens. Wenger got the nickname “Le Professeur” from fans and the British media due to his studious demeanour.
