He was appointed the manager at Arsenal last summer as the replacement for legendary manager Arsene Wenger.
The Frenchman spent 22 years at Arsenal before being replaced by Unai Emery who led the Gunners to the Europa League final in his first campaign at the Emirates Stadium.
Unai Emery and Arsenal were beaten by Chelsea in the Europa League final.
He departed Arsenal after a run of seven games without a win in all competitions namely the Premier League, the Europa League, and the Carabao Cup.
