Arsenal 4 West Ham 1: Wenger's long farewell begins in style

Thierry Henry wants Arsene Wenger to be remembered for changing how people saw Arsenal

Wenger announced on Friday that his 22-year stay as Arsenal boss will conclude at the end of the season but Wilson, who made more than 300 appearances for Arsenal between 1963 and 1974 and worked as a goalkeeping coach under Wenger, does not believe the 68-year-old Frenchman will quit football.

Wenger expanded on his announcement to leave after Sunday's 4-1 victory over West Ham.

Having proven a divisive figure in recent seasons, the confirmation that Wenger's 22-year tenure will soon be at an end had a unifying impact on the Gunners' fans, who saw Nacho Monreal's second-half goal cancelled out by a fine Marko Arnautovic strike before Ramsey and Lacazette saved the day.

While insisting he was not resentful and did not want "stupid headlines" a clearly annoyed Wenger, who appeared to want to say more than he did on the matter, explained: "Sport is about winning and losing and you have to accept that you are going to lose games".

The Frenchman, who has been at the helm of the club for 22 years - when asked if he was relieved to be leaving after the strength of personal criticism he has received, shot back saying "No, because I was not exhausted".

But after numerous poorly attended home games and a damaging run of losses away from the Emirates in 2018, Wenger also said he felt Arsenal's fans in England held the club in lower esteem than their supporters around the world. "It was not corresponding to what I really feel our club is perceived and has to be perceived all over the world".

"I had the feeling a little bit to assist (life) at my own funeral".

Inter are a point further back in fifth, just outside the Champions League places, after a hard-fought 2-1 win over Chievo.

"I don't need to die anymore". I feel the club is respected. It is hard. You do not give 22 years like that, and I gave the best years of my life to this club.

Wenger spoke before the game of his hope that the week's events would stir positive emotions in his players, but the first half was subdued with the Emirates Stadium once again below full capacity.

He's a great player and I have a good communication with him. With Arsenal out of the top four in the league, winning the Europa League is the only realistic path into the Champions League and the final in Lyon can provide Wenger with the ideal send-off. "So when they came back to 1-1 it was interesting to see how we responded".

Next up for Arsenal is the first leg of their Europa League semi-final against Atletico Madrid on Thursday evening. I do think whoever gets the opportunity should take it with both hands'.

"At the minute I speak to you, I am too attached to this club to say yes to another club", Wenger said.

Wenger is yet to say if he will manage another team.
