Arsene Wenger announced today that he would be stepping down as Arsenal manager at the end of the season following 22 successful years managing the premier league team.
Wenger, 68, has won three Premier League titles and seven FA Cups, including completing a double in 1998 and 2002.
Wenger had this message for the fans of the North London Club:
“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. To all the Arsenal lovers, take care of the values of the club.”
The last few years have been hard for the manager following the team’s poor back-t0-back results which resulted in fans calling for “Wenger Out”, testing the resolve of the Manager as well as questioning his 22 years of expertise as the Arsenal head coach.
The team are hoping to give Wenger a send off he deserves by winning the Europa League this season. First they have to beat Atletico Madrid on Thursday in the Europa Semi-Final 1st leg at The Emirates.
