Arsene Wenger’s last home match at Arsenal

Arsenal played their final match at home with Manager,Arsene Wenger for the last time and ended with an emphatic 5–0 win over Sean Dyche’s Burnley last Sunday.

Wenger is the club’s most successful manager having won 17 trophies overall over the last 22 years.

The club has been looking for a new manager ever since the announcement of him leaving at the end of the season was confirmed.

Alexandre LacazetteArsenal scored their opening goal through Pierre Emerick Aubameyang in the 14th minute (who was one of Wenger’s last signings) and the second came from strike partner Lacazette just before half-time.

Arsenal turned on the style in the second half with further goals from Sead Kolasnac, Alex Iwobi and Aubameyang to complete a brace.

The club still have two more fixtures to complete for the season both away from home with Leicester City in midweek and Huddersfield Town (still battling relegation) on the last day of the season.

There are several candidates reported who are interested in taking the job next season such as Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri and Leonardo Jardim who manages Monaco.

Quotes from the BBC Match Report

Bob Wilson – “The greatest manager we have ever had.”

Arsene Wenger – “It is 22 years of total commitment and togetherness. Overall I would like to thank everybody. I had the luxury of doing this job for 22 years at the same club and I am grateful for that.”

Sean Dyche “I think Arsenal raised their performance considerably. After the results yesterday we suddenly had nothing to play for and that affects players, they need something on the game.”
