Wenger's Arsenal legacy hard to match, says Reyes

Wenger's Arsenal legacy hard to match, says Reyes

Wenger will leave the Gunners after Sunday's final Premier League game of the season away at Huddersfield as his 22-year tenure comes to an end.

Wenger wants to address that woeful record against Huddersfield, who will be in a party mood having secured their top-flight status with impressive draws at Manchester City and Chelsea over the past week.

Asked during his final pre-match press conference about his most cherished memory at Arsenal, the 68-year-old replied: "Maybe my first title here because I came completely unknown and in my first full year I won the championship".

'There is no patience anymore and if you look at benches in the Premier League you have worldwide players but never young players.

What followed was roughly 80 minutes of high-octane Premier League football with Leicester running out 3-1 winners in a match filled with chances, goals and cards.

"Why at weekends? Because the Champions League doesn't sell well any more". While Allegri has flirted with leaving Turin this season and had said that Champions League participation was a dealbreaker, it looks that he may now relent on that. "When you have that you have less good players", he added.

"A big part of the quality of a manager is experience and I'm more experienced than I was before", Wagner said.

Wenger has previously said he will continue working in football but won't make a decision until this summer.

Arsene Wenger has one final task when he collects his belongings next Thursday from the London Colney training ground that he designed and then presided over for two decades. If you want to make it more attractive, you have to go down to 16 and make a real competition of it. "It will be smaller if it (the big teams) goes to Europe".

Arsenal travel to Mooy's Huddersfield Town for the marquee occasion, made doubly special after the Terriers confirmed their place in England's top flight for another season in mid-week.

Another called for Adams' statue outside the Emirates Stadium to be removed, writing: "Get rid of the statue how can this man who claims to be Mr. Arsenal have so little respect, the one thing Arsenal is built upon".
