Arsenal have been told to make Luis Enrique their next manager

Wenger arrived from Japan in 1996 and the three-time Premier League victor will farewell Arsenal when the Gunners face Huddersfield Town on the final day of the season on Sunday.

Speaking ahead of Arsenal's 3-1 defeat at Leicester on Wednesday night, Wenger revealed he is yet to decide his next step but refused to rule out becoming a general manager.

NAIJ.com previously reported that Arsenal defeated Burnley by 5-0 in Arsene Wenger's last game at the Emirates as the Gunners played their penultimate match of the season.

Dailymail reports that while addressing the crowd, Wenger spoke of his pride for the charity work the club now do, which has grown from small, local efforts to the global foundation that raises millions for projects worldwide every year.

David Ospina needs Arsenal to supply "readability" as they seek for the managerial successor to Arsene Wenger, who will take cost of the Gunners for the ultimate time at Huddersfield on Sunday. Not really, I'm sad.

"Of course it is very emotional after 1,235 games for the same club", Wenger said.

The Frenchman, who is leaving the Gunners at the end of the season after almost 22 years in charge, believes it will take over from the English Premier League (EPL) on weekends, with domestic matches being relegated to midweek.


Wenger's side lost their last match against Leicester City but will be hoping to send their long-serving manager out on a high by winning their first away game of 2018.

The final whistle blew, the Gunners ended their torrid seven-game away run without a win and the curtain was drawn on the Arsene Wenger era after 22 years.

"By the time I became a hardcore fan, the glory days were gone, but the passion Wenger had for Arsenal was the same as mine-so that connection was there".

Arsenal travel to the John Smith's Stadium knowing they will finish sixth in the Premier League, the lowest ever position under Wenger, as the 68-year-old departs. "He is Arsenal and I am an Arsenal fan so he has got a lot of love on my part".

The Frenchman is set to stand down after Arsenal's clash with Huddersfield on Sunday, bringing to an end his 22 years at the club.

Handing one supporter his tie, Wenger basked in the warm glow of their applause for a few moments before disappearing into the sunlit evening.
