The long serving manager is out of contract at the Emirates at the end of the season, and he saw his side go down 6-0 to London rivals Chelsea in what was his 1,000 game in charge.
And Fabregas, who Wenger turned from a 17-year-old prospect into one of the finest midfielders in the world, expressed his support for the manager by insisting that he hopes to see him stay with the club and continue the good work he has been doing there since he joined in the ’90s.
Fabregas left the club in 2011, and in doing so gave up the captains armband to embark on a second spell with his boyhood club in Catalonia, but the pair remain close to this day.
“Congratulations boss. Hopefully many more to come. #wenger1000” he said on Insagram.
