Pires was signed by Arsenal for £6 million in 2000, after stiff competition from Real Madrid and Juventus, replacing Marc Overmars.
By 2001–02, Pires had fully got to grips with the English game and had one of his best seasons. He led the Premier League assist charts and was voted both FWA Footballer of the Year and Arsenal’s player of the season, as Arsenal won the league title. In 2003 Pires capped off his season by scoring the winning goal in the FA Cup Final against Southampton.
He went on to be a crucial part of Arsenal’s quest for the Premier League title in the 2003–04 season, which they achieved, remaining unbeaten and becoming the first English top flight club to do so in 115 years. Pires was instrumental in that season, finishing that season with an impressive tally of 14 goals and seven assists in the Premier League.
In 2008, Arsenal fans voted Pires as the club’s sixth greatest player of all time.
