After nearly 22 years in charge of the Gunners, Arsene Wenger has announced that the time is right for him to leave the Emirates Stadium.
The French man revealed this in a statement published on the club’s official website on Friday morning.
It reads: “After a careful consideration and following discussions with the club, I feel it is the right time for me to step down at the end of the season.
“I am grateful for having had the privilege to serve the club for so many memorable years.
“I managed the club with full commitment and integrity.
“I want to thank the staff, the players, the Directors and the fans who make this club so special.
“I urge our fans to stand behind the team to finish on a high.
“To all the Arsenal lovers take care of the values of the club.
“My love and support forever.”
The 68-year-old is one of the most successful managers in the club’s history having won three Premier League titles – including the ‘invincibles’ team of 2003-04.
