Wenger sees Arsenal beat Burnley 5-0 in final home game

He also addressed the crowd ahead of his departure at the end of the season, declaring his love for Arsenal while thanking the fans for their support during almost 22 years at the helm.

Arsene Wenger watched Arsenal beat Burnley 5-0 in his final home match in charge on Sunday before telling fans: "I will miss you".

The visit of Burnley on Sunday will be his last home game at the helm and the club are determined to send him out with a bang - despite a disappointing season.

"I am not happy about it or enjoy it when another team loses, but of course it is for our interests", he said.

Who do you think should replace Wenger?

The speech was followed by a lap of honour around the pitch where Wenger applauded every corner of the stadium, thanking fans for their support over the years.

"Thank you all for having me for such a long time - I know that's not easy", he said, drawing a laugh from the crowd.




One of the matches, however, carries more significance in terms of what it means to the hosts.

After dodging more questions about who the club's next manager might be, and what he may do next himself, Wenger said how unusual it often felt as a soccer manager to be asked frequently how he was feeling. Really push to support these players, the staff who remains.

"This group of players has special quality, not only on the pitch, but off it too". Throughout the ups and downs, Wenger has always remained a respectable, humble gentleman and will go down as Arsenal's greatest ever manager. I would like to finish by saying one simple thing: I will miss you.

And that's started well, with Wenger given a guard of honour by both sets of players as well as Sean Dyche and the referees.

Tributes to Wenger, whose departure at the end of the season was confirmed a fortnight ago, began on the approach to the stadium.

Despite winning three Premier League titles in his first decade in charge, many fans had become frustrated with the Gunners' inability to challenge for the Premier League and Champions League in recent years.
