Mr Keegan Kruger your list of "most famous" is obviously restricted to Wenger at Arsenal. I'd argue that George Weah should have been top in your list of most famous African players that played for Wenger. Weah is now the President of Liberia. He was one of the best strikers to trailblaze League 1 in France and became even more of a giant in Serie A. He actually invited Wenger as his guest of honour on his inaugation as the President of Liberia, however, Wenger couldn't attend due to his Arsenal commitments.
