The Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern have been reacting to comments from their legendary French gaffer as he prepares to take charge of his final game for the club this weekend. Wenger will be taking his Arsenal side to Huddersfield’s John Smith Stadium as he looks to bow out with a win and before the game, he’s claimed that he can leave the club feeling proud of what he’s leaving behind him.
“I can leave a club where I can be proud of what’s behind me. There’s a fantastic structure and conditions for the next manager. I think I’ve been a little part of this club’s history and I’m proud of that.”#MerciArsène pic.twitter.com/ZlRepsD9UB

Arsene Wenger will not be in charge of Arsenal Football Club next season. For many fans that is still sinking in as he’s seen off his final European game, final home game and final pre-game press conference in the last few weeks. Now though, he prepares for his last ever game as the club’s gaffer, with Sunday’s trip to Yorkshire being the last time the fans can see Wenger in the Arsenal dugout in his 22 years at the club.
The fans have been speculating over who their new manager will be and Wenger has now said that he believes there’s a fantastic structure and conditions for the next manager. With the club looking for a new gaffer as we speak, they’ll be keen to get Wenger’s opinion on who comes in as The Gunners will want to get the right man in to continue the legacy of the Frenchman in North London.
You can read our resident Gunners’ verdict on Wenger’s comment here:
0 points away from home in 2018. Yeah absolutely fantastic boss you should be proud of what’s behind you
This man is beyond deluded. How can he say he left something good behind? No training structure, majority of first team players are 28+, in the Europa League, 6th in the league
