Everybody is hitting on Arsene Wenger at the moment because most Arsenal fans have wanted him to move on for quite a few yeaers now, but surely we all accept that the Guvnor did his best for the club for over two decades and he dedicated his life to making the Gunners one of the biggest clubs in the world.
He may have managed that in financial terms but his ability to drag the team into the top echelons managed to elude him as the moneybags owners came into the Premier League and destroyed the level playing field that Wenger was used to in his earlier days at the club.
But now, even after he has parted ways with the club, he still insists that Arsenal will always be in his heart and he cannot at the moment imagine coming to the Emirates with an opposing team. He said, in one of his last ever interviews on Arsenal.com: “It will be very difficult for me [without Arsenal],” said Wenger.
“At the moment if I want to continue to work, I think I have to move out of the country, because my gut feeling at the moment is that I would feel I would betray my club by staying in England. People might feel that I’ve betrayed what I’ve built here.
“That is the problem I face at the moment. My club is here, my heart is here and will be forever. As I said in my speech on the pitch after the Burnley game, I’m a fan above all.”
You have to accept that he is probably even a bigger fan than any of us reading this. He has dedicated the best part of his life to improving the club’s standing in the world, so let’s return the loyalty and applaud our best manager ever, and on of the most influential men in football since the turn of the century.
All Hail Arsene, and we will always be grateful for what you did for us.
