Arsene Wenger Sad To Part Ways With Arsenal

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has admitted that he is said to part ways following his 22-year association with the north London club. The French tactician managed to secure a victory over Huddersfield Town in his final game in charge and shortly after, he confirmed that there is no such thing as relief after ending his long-term stay with the Gunners.

He 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 are what makes me happy and the boys did it.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.It will be hard to adjust but I will have to deal with that. I will remain an Arsenal fan above everything else.I will stay in football for sure.”

Wenger came to England in 1996 with a bit of unknown reputation but he has certainly proved his worth during his stay. Overall, the 68-year-old guided the club to three Premier League titles and seven League Cups and they were a couple of European finals which the Gunners lost at the final hurdle to Barcelona and Galatasaray respectively.

Arsenal is now expected to announce a successor to their departing manager and reports suggest that Mikel Arteta could be the leading candidate for the job. The former Gunner has been part of Pep Guardiola’s backroom staff at Manchester City in recent seasons but the Citizens boss has admitted that he would block any possible approach for his compatriot.

The Gunners finished the season with a close 1-0 win over Huddersfield and this ensured that they picked up their first league points on the road in 2018. Prior to that, they had suffered seven straight defeats on their travels which was their worst run in over 50 years.
