'Merci Arsene' as Arsenal rout Burnley in Wenger farewell

'Merci Arsene' as Arsenal rout Burnley in Wenger farewell”

"I will miss you".

"Thank you very much for all your support down the years", he wrote.

"Like you, I will continue to support Arsenal for the rest of my life".

Wenger and Arsenal have been coy about what directly prompted his departure with a season remaining on his contract.

Almost 22 year since he first set foot on the pitch at Arsenal's former ground, Highbury, the 68-year-old ended his day with a direct address to the still-packed home stands at the Emirates, after receiving a long chorus of "One Arsene Wenger" from the club's supporters, who were each given a "Merci Arsene" t-shirt.

Arsenal's French coach Arsene Wenger crouches on the sideline during the UEFA Europa League semi-final second leg football match between Club Atletico de Madrid and Arsenal FC at the Wanda Metropolitano stadium in Madrid on May 3, 2018. Thank you all for being such an important part of my life and I hope to see you soon.

The failure to win the title since 2004 has proved costly for Wenger and the Frenchman was presented on the Emirates Stadium pitch with a miniature gold version of the trophy to celebrate the unbeaten Invincibles season 14 years ago.

Wenger said in in his prematch interview that the Germany worldwide has "a recurrence of his back problem", and added: "How long is he out, I don't know".

'That means involving at least three players every move, to express your talent, and make people feel that when football is expressed in a collective way and with a high understanding, it's art'. I know that's not easy.

Wenger will wonder what might have been had Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang not been cup-tied for the latter stages of the Europa League as the Gabon striker took his tally to eight goals in 11 Premier League appearances since joining for a club record fee from Borussia Dortmund in January. It has not sunk in yet because I am still so focused and you are a bit robotic thinking about the next game.
