Arsene Wenger has been honoured at the Nordoff Robbins Legends of Football charity night for his incredible career as manager of Arsenal. There were many past colleagues giving tributes and also his biggest adversary from his glory years, Man United’s Sir Alex Ferguson, who sent in a personal video to celebrate ‘legen’ Arsene Wenger’s career, which you can see below.
In it he says: “Hi Arsene, First of all I am sorry that I am not there tonight. I would have loved to have been there, for you to be honoured by Nordoff Robins. It is a fantastic charity and I am really proud of you for taking part in it. But, most of all, for the career that you had as a manager at Arsenal.
“It was absolutely fantastic, you are an absolute legend and that is why it is called Legends Tonight. Once again, I loved the competition against you, we had some great times and it is wonderful that you are getting this award. Good luck and my blessing is with you.”
We all know that there are quite a few fans on here that don’t really appreciate what Arsene did for Arsenal, despite winning more trophiies than any other manager in our history, but even those doubters can’t deny that he greatly admired by thousands of people in the game, and his legendary status is earned….
Anyway here is Ferguson’s video tribute…
"You're an absolute legend" 👏
