Arsenal fans were sending messages of love and support to Arsene Wenger after the Frenchman made a stark revelation about why he hasn’t returned to management yet.
Will Unai Emery survive the season in charge of Arsenal?
The legendary figure revealed that while he did have offers from numerous clubs to return to the game, he had to turn them down after illnesses suffered by his brother and sister (via 20minutes).
It has been reported by the British media that the 70-year-old turned down an offer from Fulham last season when the west London club were looking for a new manager (via The Telegraph).
Wenger has been out of work since the end of the 2017/2018 season when he stepped down as manager of the north London giants after a mammoth 22 years at the club.
He enjoyed unparalleled success with the Gunners when he managed to win a Premier League title by going an entire season unbeaten.
After his services to the club, fans flooded Twitter with messages of love for the Arsenal legend.
Here is a selection of tweets from the Emirates Stadium faithful:
Get well soon Wenger siblings
