Crowd Salutes Wenger Ahead of His Final Home Game

Arsenal and Burnley players formed a guard of honor for Arsene Wenger on May 6 as he took charge of the Gunners for the last time at the Emirates Stadium.

“Final entrance of the legend,” wrote Ayala Maurer-Prager on Twitter, posting a video from the stadium.

Wenger, 68, is the Gunners longest-serving manager.

Wenger was given a fitting sendoff by his team, as they ran out 5-0 winners.

“It is a very sad day for me. I came here [to the Emirates] to make the first photos and then the lorries came in when it was a deposit for the rubbish. I have worked on every single part of this stadium from your press conferences to the technical area so, of course, it’s part of myself,” he said, reported the Guardian.

“But as well it’s a day where the people that come behind me can work in good conditions. My successor inherits a team that is much better than people think it is. With the right additions this team will challenge next year,” he said.
