Wenger will reach the milestone when Arsenal travel to title rivals Chelsea this weekend after 18 years at the North London outfit.

The Frenchman, who is in talks over a new deal to extend his stay at the Emirates, believes the feat of reaching 1,000 games in charge will not be repeated at Arsenal.

"It is absolutely unique," said Rosicky.

"I don't think that anyone will repeat something like that again. He is a legend for this club."

Meanwhile, Rosicky, who signed a new deal at the club earlier this month, is determined to win his first piece of silverware for the club this season after arriving from Borussia Dortmund in 2006.

"I would love to win a trophy with Arsenal," added Rosicky. "This is why I came here and I still believe I can do it here. That's why I am still here.

"Our win at Spurs may have knocked their challenge for fourth place, but I don't think like that. My goal is to win the league. I am not looking for a top-four finish - my goal is to win the league.

"I am staying here, I love this club and that was always my goal. It still is and I will give absolutely everything I can to achieve my dreams."

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.

amous. If that can be achieved whilst sitting in your pants and without any degree of hard work, all the better. I have no desire to be famous, but the rest of that line suits me just fine. Great article by the way, well worth the wait.

here seems to be little focus on the performance of Besiktas. They played very well and stopped Arsenal from playing. Credit has to go to their manager. As much as Arsenal didn't play too well, we kept a clean sheet, but the home side made it very difficult.
