Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger was full of thanks to the club’s fans for their overwhelming support over the last 22 years.
Wenger watched his side demolish Burnley 5-0 in his final home game in charge of the club at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday.
“It is impossible to feel nothing unless you are completely robotic. It is 22 years of total commitment and togetherness,” Wenger told the cheering crowd after Sunday’s match.
“Overall I would like to thank everybody. I had the luxury of doing this job for 22 years at the same club and I am grateful for that.
“It is difficult to analyse this season for what this team has done. At home is has been championship stuff, but away from home it has not been enough. We also went to the League Cup final and Europa League semi-final.”
He also called on the fans to support the new manager who will be appointed soon.
“The fans may be lost at the start, but they will have a new manager but they can continue the work as the basics are here,” the Frenchman said.
“I would like to thank everyone at the club who makes this club so special.
“This group of players has special quality, not only on the pitch, but off it too. Support them next season, because they deserve it.
“I will miss you. Thank you for being such an important part of my life. I hope to see you soon.”
