Arsene Wenger has confirmed that, after 22 years at the coal face, he is to end his tenure as Arsenal manager at the end of the current season.

With no mention of retiring or further future plans, the 68-year-old has issued a personal statement via the official Arsenal website to announce that he intends to step down at the culmination of the Gunners’ 2017/18 campaign.

Entitled ‘Merci, Arsene‘, the aforementioned statement reads thus:

After careful consideration and following discussions with the club, I feel it is the right time for me to step down at the end of the season.

I am grateful for having had the privilege to serve the club for so many memorable years.

I managed the club with full commitment and integrity.

I want to thank the staff, the players, the Directors and the fans who make this club so special.

I urge our fans to stand behind the team to finish on a high.

To all the Arsenal lovers take care of the values of the club.

My love and support for ever.

Arsene Wenger

Positively humming with dignity and class, as ever – which is amazing, considering some of the #WengerOut poppycock he’s had to face from inside his own camp in recent years.

Build that man a statue.

    “Build that man a statue.” Spot on Chris. And this is from a Liverpool fan.
    He was been fantastic for English football.

  2. Wenger OUT says:

    Yes ! This is his best decision ever

  3. Wenger IN says:

    I would personally love a total breakdown at Arsenal next season. By far the most vocal and annoying fans in the Premier League who think they have a devine right to be challenging for the title. The only thing you’ll be challenging for is the League Cup and a Europa League position. He’s done so much for the club in terms turning the club into a genuine recognised name in world football as well as spearheading a new stadium during times of financial difficulty. I’m going to miss you Arsene
