Remi Garde the latest link in Premier League’s French connection

first_img Three Premier League titles and six FA Cup triumphs has etched Wenger into English football folklore. He arrived as an unknown from Grampus Eight but revolutionised the Gunners and won the double in just his second season. The invincible campaign of 2003-04 has gone down in history and while Arsenal have not won the league since – leading to criticism of Wenger – he remains one of the best managers in the Barclays Premier League era. GERARD HOULLIER – LIVERPOOL (1998-2004) AND ASTON VILLA (2010-11) Houllier initially arrived as joint manager with Roy Evans but eventually took sole charge at Anfield. Houllier failed to win the title but did complete a famous treble in 2001 when Liverpool won the League Cup, FA Cup and UEFA Cup. After leaving in 2004 he returned to England six years later for a brief and unsuccessful spell at Aston Villa, although he broke the club’s transfer record when signing Darren Bent for £24million in 2011. JEAN TIGANA – FULHAM (2000-03) The former Arsenal midfielder, who played under Arsene Wenger with the Gunners, is the second Frenchman to take charge of Villa. Here Press Association Sport looks at how his fellow countrymen coped in the top flight. ARSENE WENGER – ARSENAL (1996-present) Remi Garde becomes just the sixth permanent French manager in Barclays Premier League history after being appointed as Aston Villa’s new boss. The former France international was a surprise choice with Fulham still in the old First Division at the time. But in his first full season at the Cottage he helped Fulham to the top flight and set a record by winning their first 11 games of the season, claiming the title with 101 points. He took Fulham to an FA Cup semi-final and into the UEFA Cup but was sacked in April 2003 with the club facing relegation before replacement Chris Coleman saved them. JACQUES SANTINI – TOTTENHAM (2004) A huge flop at White Hart Lane, Santini’s reign spanned just 13 games. He joined from France after taking the national team to the Euro 2004 quarter-finals – where they lost to eventual winners Greece – but struggled to settle in north London. Santini started well and was unbeaten in his first seven matches but then won just once more before resigning for personal reasons, his last game being a 2-0 defeat to Fulham. ALAIN PERRIN – PORTSMOUTH (2005) The current China coach lasted just 231 days at Fratton Park and only managed four wins in 21 games after joining in April 2005. His biggest highlight was a 4-1 derby win over Southampton which pushed the Saints closer to relegation. But just two wins from 14 games in 2005-06 saw him axed in November – paving the way for Harry Redknapp’s return to Portsmouth. Press Associationlast_img read more
