Arsene Wenger’s Parting Message For Arsenal Following Final Game In Charge

 The Gunners was given a standing ovation during the Premier League clash

Arsene Wenger revealed that he is “sad” rather than relieved after his final game in charge of Arsenal.

The Gunners boss, who joined the club in 1996, guided his side to a 1-0 win victory over Huddersfield on the final day of the season.

Before kick-off at the Kirklees Stadium the 68-year-old waved farewell to the crowd and even signed off with a bow.

After Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s strike secured three points, Wenger said: “Of course it is very emotional after 1,235 games for the same club.

“To enjoy it we had to win it, winning football games is what makes me happy and the boys did it.

“It was a good day for everyone with Huddersfield staying up too.

“Do I feel relief? Not really, I’m sad.

“At some stage it has to end, I wish everyone well, the fans have been great until the end and I wish the club well for the future.

“I believe I had an impact on the club as a whole because the club is in a strong position, it has a new stadium, a new training ground and new players.

“With the results we won three Premier League titles, played 49 games unbeaten and I’m very proud to have won seven FA Cups too.”

Wenger has been reluctant to discuss his future, but the Frenchman insisted that he will always be an Arsenal supporter.

He added: “It will be hard to adjust of course but I will have to deal with that.

“I want to wish this group of players well and the staff coming in, I will remain an Arsenal fan above everything else.

“I see a bright future for my successor because the team has a good attitude and quality.

“The team needs some additions and if they get them I think they will compete for the Premier League title.

Wenger announced last month that he would be leaving the North London giants after 22 years in charge.

During his reign, the 68-year-old won 17 trophies and guided his side to 716 wins in 1235 matches.
