Arsenal will find it hard to replace Wenger - Gilberto Silva

Grant SmithMay 15, 2018

The Frenchman has guided Arsenal through a fair share of changes throughout his nearly 22-year reign in north London and believes that a European super league will be the next major development.

However, Wenger - who will farewell the Londoners following Sunday's trip to Huddersfield Town - has no regrets as he said: "I believe Highbury had a special spirit".

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger signing autographs ahead of his final match in charge before the Premier League match at the John Smith's Stadium, Huddersfield.

A sell-out crowd gave Wenger a standing ovation in the 22nd minute in tribute to his 22-year Arsenal career and his side finally began to warm to their task after a slow start.

"Above all what keeps me going is to win football games and in the end the boys wanted to deliver a win and we got it".

Wenger, during the interview, revealed that he encouraged Arsenal to organise a tour in India: "I have always encouraged Arsenal to organise a tour in India".

He will call time on his stay with the Gunners at the final whistle, a sound which many will hope is accompanied by a fitting away win. "These contradictions which I don't really understand, I would love to see it for myself", he said. With his 22 years at Arsenal soon to conclude, it's perhaps too early for the Frenchman to think about the future.

Huddersfield took the game to Arsenal in the second period without seriously testing Ospina until the 60th minute. "But my last pain, the last big defeat, is that [Atletico Madrid]".

The north London outfit haven't won the Premier League title since 2003-04.

Only Swansea (27) have scored fewer Premier League goals than Huddersfield's 28 this season.

"Overall it is very sad because the decision went against us and we are upset that we lost a game that we should not have lost", he said.

There was something to celebrate at the climax to an otherwise miserably lackluster final season in charge, with Arsenal finishing sixth in the Premier League - the lowest under Wenger.

Arsenal would be 16th in the table based only on away results this season; at home, only Manchester City have earned more points than the Gunners' 47.
