Arsene Wenger Arsenal

"Today we could probably say he was, and is still, an influencer in football. Even with question marks over Arsenal this season I've seen them on form and they have still some top, top players there". "The decision is made, I think now it's time for us to honor him". But he said the timing of the announcement was meant to give the club enough time to find a successor and to make sure the "Arsenal family could come together and express our affection and our gratitude to this man".

Arsenal face Atletico Madrid in the Europa League semi-finals, but such domestic under-performance placed greater pressure on the manager's position.

"If he's happy with the decision, I'm really happy and I hope he doesn't retire from football".

"For us football people, the real football people, who are the ones inside the four lines, playing, or the managers. the football people don't have short memories", he said.

The 68-year-old Frenchman has won the Premier League three times and the FA Cup seven times with Arsenal since taking charge in October 1996.

While Wenger is widely regarded as the greatest manager in Arsenal's history, Gunners legend Bob Wilson revealed what the Strasbourg native is like as a man.

Sir Alex Ferguson called the Frenchman "without doubt one of the greatest Premier League managers".

Other contenders for the Arsenal manager's job include Germany head coach Joachim Low, ex-Borussia Dortmund coach Thomas Tuchel and Celtic F.C. manager Brendan Rodgers, The Mail's Sami Mokbel and Jonathan Spencer reported Tuesday. He's pretty much an Arsene Wenger copycat, because he finished last season undefeated in league with Celtic and also had Kolo Toure (that's a joke, he's not a copycat).

Ferguson and Wenger endured a hard working relationship as the pair competed for titles between 1996 and 2013 when the former retired. He can stay in Italy and continue to win Serie A after Serie A, but at Arsenal he'll likely have more resources to invest in players.
