Adjust Comment Print

Arsene Wenger has managed his final home game in charge of the Gunners after 22 years of success, exhilarating football, unbeaten seasons, a whole lot of fans moaning on YouTube, a seemingly never-ending cycle, and a bunch of heavy defeats.

A banner carrying the same message was unfurled as the two teams emerged from the tunnel, with Wenger coming out after the players to receive a guard of honour.

The Gunners were knocked out of the Europa League by Atletico Madrid in midweek and will now simply try to give Arsene Wenger the best possible send off in what is his final home game in charge.

The Frenchman stated: "I will always be an Arsenal fan". "Above all, like you, I am an Arsenal fan".

"I would like to finish by saying I will miss you. Thank you all for having such an important part of my life, thank you all, well done, bye bye". Moreover, his "Invincibles" side are the only club to win the Premier League without losing a game. I'd say what has linked all my teams through the years is the desire to play as a connected team, at a high pace, and to make the players reach a complex form of collective football.

"Like you, I will continue to support Arsenal for the rest of my life".

"The Arsene Wenger era is one that Arsenal fans will never forget", said a special 60-page supplementary programme given to supporters.

"That's how I see it".

Their first qualifying match will take place on July 26th, not long after the World Cup final, unless Arsenal collapse in their final games and allow Burnley to pip them to sixth. A brace from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang as well as goals from Sead Kolasinac, Alexandre Lacazette and Alex Iwobi secured the flawless finale.

Aubameyang turned provider for Alex Iwobi to smash home the fourth after being given a huge amount of time inside the Burnley box to pick his spot.

Arsenal are yet to announce who will be their new manager after Wenger confirmed that he will be standing down as Gunners boss at the end of the current campaign.
