Arsenal Close To Announcing Wenger's Replacement

I'm not joining Arsenal Juventus boss Allegri insists

It's sure to be an emotional day but hopefully the players will do all they can to send Wenger off with a win as we look to collect our first away point of 2018. "It was a good day for everyone with Huddersfield staying up too", said Wenger.

Wenger, during the interview, revealed that he encouraged Arsenal to organise a tour in India: "I have always encouraged Arsenal to organise a tour in India".

Arsene Wenger's 22-year reign as Arsenal boss finishes on Sunday as his aspect tackle Huddersfield away within the Premier League.

Huddersfield took the game to Arsenal in the second period without seriously testing Ospina until the 60th minute.

He was unable to offer one final wave to the Arsenal fans because of a pitch invasion, with Huddersfield fans celebrating their top-flight survival which was secured following a midweek draw at Chelsea.

Asked during his final pre-match press conference about his most cherished memory at Arsenal, the 68-year-old replied: "Maybe my first title win because I came here completely unknown and in my first full year I won the championship".

"For me, Allegri has done remarkable work at Juve with a budget far from that of the big European teams", he said.

"It's frustration, I believe we played a great game, with 10 v 11 we showed quality, spirit and overall it's very sad".

Arsenal are unbeaten in the last nine meetings in all competitions, winning seven and drawing two.

With another season in the Premier League already assured, the Terriers have little at stake in this match, if anything at all.

Wenger, whose tenure lasted nearly 22 years and took in 1,235 games, was given a rousing reception by both sets of fans in a carnival atmosphere.

Arsenal have finished the season in sixth on 63 points, the lowest haul in the Wenger era, and will again be plying their trade in the Europa League next term, but Wenger is confident the future is bright for his successor.

Arsenal have only won one of their last five matches in all competitions, drawing one and losing three.

The Gunners lost 3-0 to Premier League champions Manchester City in the League Cup final at Wembley earlier this season.
