'Merci Arsene' as Arsenal bid farewell to Wenger

  • No fairytale for Wenger Twitter divided as Arsenal manager’s last European game ends in 1-0 loss

Arsenal put their midweek exit from the Europa League - and any hope of Champions League football next season - behind them with a pair of goals from Gabon striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and strikes from Sead Kolasinac, Alexandre Lacazette and Alex Iwobi.

The club plan for Wenger to be saluted after the final whistle of the Burnley clash, a match that takes on extra significance as victory for the visitors would see them pull level with sixth-placed Arsenal on 57 points.

Their European tour might not last very long, it might end before the Premier League season restarts, but the Burnley fans will still get a European away trip - every bottom half club's dream.

Wenger's last-ever Arsenal programme notes kicked off with the manager talking about the painful Europa League semi-final defeat to Atletico Madrid on Thursday night.

"It means that even if they are not always happy, they still respected me and wanted to show at least I gave my total commitment to do well", said Wenger of his ovation from the supporters.

And Aubameyang finished as he started by steering home Hector Bellerin's cross to round off a five-star performance by the Gunners to send Wenger off in style.

"I think I played 840 Premier League games".


The Daily Star is reporting that the north London club are preparing to hand Arsene Wenger's successor a significant budget to strengthen the Gunners' squad this summer.

"Thank you for having me for such a long time", Wenger said in an address to fans. I would like to thank everyone at the club who makes this club so special.

In fact, Rioch tells one story about an unnamed player who admitted he came close to ending his own life just minutes before.

"I don't know [about a break]", Wenger added. It is caring about the handsome game, about the values that we cherish.

"It will be hard to say thank you enough", he told a news conference (via Goal).

"I would like to finish in one simple sentence: I will miss you. Well done. Bye bye".
