Sanchez still adapting to 'difficult' Man United

Adjust Comment Print

The 68-year-old Frenchman, leaving the club at the end of the season, will bring a side that is a pale shadow of the team that challenged United's Premier League dominance during his first decade in charge.

Wenger, however, should and will be remembered for his extensive glory in the English league and cup competitions, with a mesmerising total of 17 trophies (potentially 18, if Arsenal can win the Europa League this season) - three Premier Leagues, seven FA Cups and seven Community Shields. "You should give me a little bit of peace for my final weeks, don't push me into a final confrontation".

"Now it's peaceful. Both of us have calmed down and with time respect takes over", Wenger said.

However, Bailly has suggested that United have placed more attention on trying to defeat rivals Arsenal on Sunday afternoon, who find themselves in sixth position and out of contention for the top four.

Their current manager, Jose Mourinho, has openly shown contempt and disrespect for the departing Arsenal manager.

Mourinho's record against Wenger is outstanding, with the Portuguese enjoying a far superior head-to-head against the French tactician.

"I think that a team without a Brazilian isn't a team", Mourinho told ESPN Brazil.

As it stands, he has five matches left in all competitions, but he could salvage one last outing in a Europa League final should his men negotiate a way past Atletico Madrid come Thursday. We had big matches, big fights, so thank you so much for that. "I think United is a club with more history and we want to win trophies next year".

However, Mohamed Elneny is unlikely to play again this season after damaging ankle ligaments against West Ham last weekend while Santi Cazorla is still working his way back from serious injury.

Alexis Sanchez will face Arsenal for the first time since quitting the club to join United in January.

Mourinho also said there was "no chance" that keeper David de Gea would be allowed to leave the club in the close season.

Arsene Wenger won't know what to do with himself once his 22-year reign at Arsenal wraps up at the end of May.
