When Robert Pirès arrived at Arsenal in 2000 he faced the unenviable task of replacing Marc Overmars. By the time he left the north Londoners in 2006 he had written his name in both the club's and English football's history books. The dashing and incisive attacking French midfielder talks about his key role in both Arsenal's 'Invincible' and Double-winning teams of 2002 and 2004, respectively. Former Arsenal chairman David Dein and French journalist Julien Laurens reflect on his influence.
