Unbeaten Arsenal Stars: Where are Anri, Bergkamp and others now and how do they look?

Arsenal is a popular and strong football team. Its names can be found almost everywhere, even in online casinos reviews UK. Today, we take a look at what has become of all the players of that glorious pedigree.

Sol Campbell

The club did not need the defensive leader of the champion season of 2006 and went to Portsmouth. However, he returned to Arsenal in January 2010 following Lehmann’s scenario. The 36-year-old veteran played 11 games and then tried a season at Newcastle.

Campbell then embarked on a coaching career. Saul worked on the coaching staff of the Trinidad and Tobago national team before taking charge of the English third-division club Southend United in 2019. He is now unemployed, but may well start a political career: after all, back in 2016, he planned to run for mayor of London.

Patrick Vieira

Arsenal fans nostalgically remember the game, Patrick. He became one of the symbols of that team. And his clash with Roy Keane went down in history, with a film, Best Enemies, being made about him.

Vieira left Arsenal in 2005 before playing for Juventus, Inter and Manchester City. He has won the Italian league title with the Nerazzurri on three occasions. In July 2011 he announced his retirement and went straight into coaching. He has worked with Man City’s youngsters, gained some experience in the United States and then took charge of Nice in 2018, but was sacked in December 2020 due to poor results.

Ashley Cole

In 2004, Ashley burned the flank more steeply than anyone else and legitimately made the symbolic team of the season. However, the following year he showed that he was bored with the club, besides, Chelsea had already prepared a good contract.

In 2012, Cole won the Champions League with the team, and two seasons later he left for Italy. But he did not stay long there either and headed to the USA to play some seasons with Zlatan and Carlos Vela. It looked like he would end his career there, but Frank Lampard urged the 39-year-old def to help Derby County in 2019. He agreed to play nine matches and finalized his career.

Cole now works as Chelsea’s U15 coach.

Gilberto Silva

The 2003/2004 season was the best one for the holding midfielder: after that, he was mostly either on the mend or had a row with Wenger. Silva transferred to Greek Panathinaikos in 2008. Three years later, he returned to his home country to finish his career in 2014.

In an interview, Silva said that after football he would like to live on a small farm and ride a horse. It is not known whether that dream has come true, but the Brazilian now has enough to do.

Fredrik Jungberg

The brutal midfielder didn’t play much for Arsenal between 2004 and 2007 but was an essential part of the team. Unfortunately, injuries did not allow the Swede to develop fully, but after Arsenal, he played in Japan, Scotland, and the USA.

In the summer of 2019, after several years working with youngsters, he became Canaries head coach Unai Emery’s assistant. Following Basque’s dismissal, he was appointed acting head coach until the end of the season. Jungberg left Arsenal for a new challenge last year and is now furious at Arteta’s team.

Robert Pires

One of the best marginal midfielders in Europe has fully revealed himself at Arsenal. Fans would later rank the Frenchman as the sixth greatest player in the history of the club.

Pires left Arsenal for Spanish Villarreal in 2006. After changing a few more clubs, he ended up at Goa in 2014.

In 2021, Robert declared that he was bored without a job and wanted to coach. And he is busy preparing for his license.

Thierry Henry

The brilliant Frenchman gave eight years to Arsenal before being promoted to Barça: the media wrote that he left England because of his divorce from his wife, but it was becoming apparent to fans that he was deteriorating at the club. Several years in Catalonia brought a host of titles, including a Champions League win.

In December 2014, Henri ended his career as a player and became an expert on TV. He later joined the Belgian national team coaching staff.

He was appointed head coach of Monaco in 2018 but was quickly sacked due to conflict with the players and terrible results. Henri’s last job was with the Canadian club Montreal Impact, which he left in 2021.

Henri is also an active fighter against racism in football and is involved in charity work.
