Arsenal Closing In On Managerial Successor To Arsene Wenger

14 May 2018

"Wenger is a great manager and what he has done for the club in the last 22 years has been incredible, amazing".

The club have been on the look out for a new manager since Wenger announced late last month that he'll leave Arsenal at the end of the season following nearly 22-years in charge.

The goal to Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from an Aaron Ramsey cross delivered a bittersweet end to Wenger's career with Arsenal as the side finished sixth, its lowest final placing in the EPL in his long stint as manager.

Wenger was given a guard of honour before kick-off at the John Smith's Stadium and the feelgood atmosphere peaked in the 22nd minute - marking his number of years in charge - when he was afforded a lengthy period of applause from the entire stadium.

But another message trailed from a plane toward the end of the game in northern England, one blaming owner Stan Kroenke for Arsenal's failure to win the title since 2004: "Kroenke - you're next".

The 68-year-old Frenchman reflected on his "human experiences" in his time at Arsenal on a day of mixed emotions, while he also spoke about his enjoyment of England and its football culture. "I am addicted and I don't think that can be cured", he said. I wish everybody well and thank everybody.

But ruthless Huddersfield fans were in no mood to play along, chanting: "You wanted him out, you wanted him out. you two-faced b******s, you wanted him out". Allegri would be the Arsenal fans' preferred choice and Ornstein claimed earlier in the week that he was likely to be leaving Juventus.

"I see a bright future for my successor because the team has a good attitude and has quality. We need two or three additions and after that I believe the team will compete for the Premier League".

"Of course it is very emotional after 1,235 games for the same club", Wenger said. "But I just hope we can give him something to shout about for his last game and help him sign off with a win".

After 22 years of stability in the dugout, the Gunners are set to bid farewell to a long-serving manager following a final day showdown with Huddersfield.

"Not really, I'm sad", he said.

"Yes I had offers, of course, but at the moment I did not even speak to anybody of the many offers", he said.
