Wenger made the announcement yesterday morning via the club’s website in an emotional statement that he would be stepping down at the end of the season.

Wenger is the longest serving manager in Premier League history and made his decision yesterday morning.

He also has the record for being the most successful FA Cup manager in history with seven wins to his name.

He said on the club’s website: “After 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.”

There was a growing sense of apathy being displayed by fans at the Emirates Stadium with a number of empty seats in Premier League games recently.

Arsenal face West Ham tomorrow, followed by a crucial game on Thursday night against Atletico Madrid in the Europa League first-leg.

However, the Emirates is certain to be a full house and emotionally charged until Wenger leaves at the end of the season, with the club keen to give Wenger a perfect send off with a Europa League win.

Extraordinarily, Wenger has managed 1228 games as Arsenal boss, with 823 of those coming in the Premier League.

This number could reach 1235 if Wenger’s men reach the Europa League final in his native France.

Here are some of the best of the Arsene Wenger stats throughout his time in England.
