It's a high five for Arsenal as Wenger fans say 'Merci, Arsene'

"But I will also feel grateful for having led this club - that I cherish so much - for such a long time".

But financially, Wenger's involvement was hugely integral; the manager ensuring Arsenal stayed in the Champions League - and recouped the millions that went with it - during a period where squad investment was significantly restricted.

Farewell for the 68-year-old ended with presentations and speeches on the pitch.

And Wenger has promised to return to the stadium he helped build, saying: 'I would be happy to sit in the North Bank.

"I do not want to put any pressure on the club to choose this guy or this guy and give already a handicap to the guy who comes in because he has been chosen or it wasn't my decision - I am nothing to do with that".

"His legacy I think people will value it in the years to come", Lauren told club website. Will I be free on the days Arsenal plays? Chants of "There's only one Arsene Wenger" and "Arsene give us a wave" could be heard at regular intervals and the celebratory mood was improved by a dominant performance on the pitch.

"'That means this is just more than watching football, it is a way of life, it is caring about the handsome game, the values we cherish, and something that goes through all of our body, we care, we worry, we are desperate". "Thank you all for being such an important part of my life".

In eight appearances this season (four of them starts) he allowed 33 hits and 21 runs across 27 innings, CBS Sports reports . As a player with five years of major league service, he can not be assigned to the minor leagues without his consent.

Instead, the result means the Gunners will finish the season in sixth place, with Burnley one place behind them in seventh.

Arsenal had given red T-shirts with text "Merci Arsene" to all the fans who were in attendance Sunday and Wenger was joined by club legends Bob Wilson and Pat Rice on the big day.

But, while Wenger would again not be drawn on his replacement, he said the team at his disposal will be good enough to challenge for honours - provided there are some key additions. He transformed them into a new style of play.

"This is Arsene Wenger, the greatest manager we have ever had".

After the final whistle, Arsenal awarded Wenger with the special trophy the club had been awarded to commemorate their undefeated "Invincibles" title season of 2003-04, before the manager addressed the stadium for a final time.

Thank you for 22 years, the Professor; and thank you for creating 'Arsenal'.
