Meet The Only Arsenal Captain To Ever Win The League Title In Three Different Decades

Legends are people whose impact in words or actions are felt for quite a long time either in their presence or absence. There are so many legendary figures around the world and football is no different.

When talking about legendary figures in football, the likes of Pele, Armando Maradona, Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi, Ronaldinho Gaucho, Paolo Maldini and many others come to mind.

When it comes to Arsenal football club, names like Thierry Henry, Patrick Vieira, Dennis Bergkamp, Robert Pires, Sol Campbell, Jens Lehmann, Kanu Nwankwo, Freddie Ljunberg, David Seaman come to mind.

But in this article, I am bringing readers the only legendary Arsenal captain to ever win the English league title in three different decades. This man is none other than the widely respected ex central-defender Tony Adams.

Known throughout the Arsenal fanbase as "Mr Arsenal". Tony Adams spent the entirety of his career which spanned 19 years in North London at the old Highbury Stadium. He is considered one of the greatest players of all time to have worn the famous red and white jersey.

In 672 appearances for the Gunners, Tony Adams won four league titles, three FA Cups, two football league cups, one UEFA cup winners cup and two Community Shields with the Gunners. A statue of this legendary centre-back stands proudly in a corner outside the Emirates Stadium.

Tony Adams won the league in three different decades. His first league title win came in 1989, his second in 1991, his third in 1998 and his last league title in 2002. This means he won the league in the 1980s, 1990s and 2000s.

He also captained Arsenal to victory in the only trophy that could be classified as an European one when the Gunners won the European cup winners cup in 1993/1994. Tony Adams is a true Arsenal legend.
