Ferguson: Rival, colleague and friend Wenger is one of the greatest

21 April 2018

"His achievements at Arsenal are a testimony to his commitment and love for the club".

A purveyor of exciting, attacking football, Tuchel certainly fits the bill of Arsenal manager stylistically and his trust in youth and a willingness to play daring football will make him an interesting proposition. Like every Arsenal fan that has clamoured for a change in the team's managerial hierarchy, I am elated about the latest development.

"What he brought to French football and what he gave to Arsenal in the period without Premier Leagues, the transition from stadium to stadium".

Club chief executive Ivan Gazidis is scheduled to hold a news conference at 5 p.m. local time on Friday.

Football was famously far more important than life or death for Liverpool manager Bill Shankly - but Arsene Wenger took obsession with the attractive game to a whole new level.

"He is an extraordinary man".

"I have great respect for him and for the job he has done at Arsenal. But don't underestimate the standard that Arsene Wenger has set", Seaman said.

The newly-departed Arsenal boss would watch footage of matches from around the world after he got back from the training ground, and attended Arsenal games at all levels, from academy up.

"But I want that to be in-house".

"We will give him the send-off he deserves". We all believed it but that's only a testament to the power of football, to the power of these two men.

Club captain Per Mertsacker said he felt "sad and emotional" on hearing of Wenger's departure.

Figures disclosed a year ago that some €119 million in Apple's global sales are put through its Irish operations. The IMF has also strongly criticised the approach of the Trump administration to trade deficits.

"It is quite emotional", he said.

"To stay for such a long time is not easy".

"Real football people appreciate what he's done". I was trying to talk from the heart and it went I would say too far.

Former goalkeeper David Seaman said it was a "sad day", while former midfielder Paul Merson called for the club's stadium to be renamed after the Frenchman in his honour.

"We must now focus on making a strong finish to the season and ask our millions of fans around the world to join us in paying appropriate tribute to one of the greats of Arsenal's history and one of the greats of the game". He didn't look like a manager if I'm honest.

Arsene Wenger will leave Arsenal at the end of the season.

"This is one of the most hard days we have ever had in all our years in sport", Kroenke said.

"The last time we spoke together about his future, he was very grateful to be working in the U.S., but it's a first step for him".

"I have been fortunate to be at Arsenal for over 22 years and what he has done for our club has been unbelievable".

Yet despite cup success in recent years, fans have become increasingly frustrated by the north London club's inability to challenge the likes of Manchester City and Chelsea for the Premier League title and a failure to reach the sharp end of the Champions League.
