Arsene Wenger will leave Arsenal at the end of the season after 2 years in charge

This was the first match since Wenger announced he would be leaving the club at the end of the season on Friday, after almost 22 years. Arsenal's form at home since their slump has been a prolific one and they have scored plenty of goals here. It was a good team spirit and good preparation for Thursday. It's a huge club with pressure and that's all I concentrate on.
"It's going to be a condensed summer with a World Cup in the middle and a shortened transfer window, so I think for all of us having that clarity sooner is better", he explained, with Germany coach Joachim Loew also linked with the job. Arsenal fans just need to hope his interest in the job never materializes into an actual Premier League return.
The Frenchman was an integral member of Wenger's successful early teams at Highbury, winning three Premier League titles and three FA Cups between 1996 and 2005.
"But I respect his decision and now I'm hoping that Arsenal will be able to win it for him as a sweet parting gift". We kind of laud people like Pep Guardiola for what he has brought to the game, that's what Arsene Wenger was.
April 20th, 2018 saw the man who achieved the 'invincible' in 2004, confirm that he will be leaving the club on completion of the ongoing Premier League season.
"One day he is doing a news conference with no hint of this, the next he's gone". Given all that positivity I am sure their players will be up for it. His side does have a concerning injury list, and this could impact their chances against Arsenal.
Granted, Arsenal had won the league on 10 previous occasions but who even knew about the club apart from a few aristocrats in Islington? There was no Arsenal without Arsène Wenger and we get this funny feeling that history is bound to repeat itself.
"The club offered me four years and I was happy to sign that".
What the journalist did say in the end was, sadly, but perhaps predictably, underwhelming.
After eight fruitful seasons at Highbury/Emirates, Fabregas returned to his boyhood club Barcelona in 2011 and while Arsenal fans were forgiving then, they certainly weren't when he returned to the English top-flight after in 2014.
The Gunners had taken the lead on 51 minutes after Nacho Monreal volleyed in from a corner, but Marko Arnautovic equalised just after the hour mark, rifling a shot past David Ospina.
