Arsene Wenger is understood to have recently sat down to record his parts for a documentary about Arsenal's 'Invincibles'.

The famous Gunners side that won the 2003/04 season without losing a match is one of the best-known teams in world football.

The spine of that team - including Patrick Vieira, Robert Pires and Thierry Henry - were French, just like their manager.

And the feature-length documentary is being filmed in France, focussing highly on Wenger and his journey at Arsenal.

According to the Sun, Wenger has recently been filming his parts of the project, which is being directed by ITV reporter Gabriel Clarke and renown French journalist Christian Jeanpierre.

Reports last October suggested that the title for the Canal Plus commissioned doc would be 'Arsene Wenger: Invincible', and that it was set to be released in 2020.

The film will also uncover more of his time in Japan and in France as he narrates over his career highlights and the lower moments of some previously unseen footage.

Speaking about his participation in the project, Wenger said: "This documentary highlights a very special period in my life and career.

"I have total confidence in the team and the production companies.

"Gabriel and Christian are probably the only directors who could persuade me to do this documentary! I will try to give the best of my memories and my life story!"

One topic that could be uncovered is the story of Wenger's meeting with Zlatan Ibrahimovic, which the Swede recently discussed, revealing that the move didn't work out because he would not trial.

"I went to London for an appointment with Wenger, who asked me to audition for the Gunners," the AC Milan target man recalled.

"I told him 'I will not do a trial: either you take me or not, I'm not here to waste time'.

"I already had that kind of trust, because in my mind I was the strongest of all even when I was young. I met Wenger because I expected him to tell me to start with them right away. But Ibra does not test.

"When I was young, in my mind no one was better than me.

"I watched Ronaldo, Romario and Baggio on TV and I had one goal: I wanted to show that I was the best."
