For the final time, Arsene Wenger will take to the home dugout as manager of Arsenal Football Club bringing to an end his 22-year stay.
The Gunners host Burnley in a big clash for sixth place in the Premier League and the club have made plans to pay tribute to their long-serving manager.
Guard of honour
Arsene Wenger will be given a guard of honour by the players ahead of tomorrow’s game at the Emirates, claim the Daily Mirror.
It is also understood that although the club have prepared tributes, Wenger has asked for the tributes to be low key following the Gunners’ exit from the Europa League on Thursday evening.
Also receiving a mention will be the retiring Per Mertesacker, Alex Scott and kit man Vic Akers.
The Armoury tribute
#AFC | Really nice what Arsenal have done in The Armoury at the Emirates.
Very touching and fitting.
Fans will be able to write a message in the book which will be given to Arsène Wenger at the end of the season.

In the club’s official shop, outside the Emirates, Arsenal have shirts with messages from the players on the back to the manager.
The club have also given the supporters an opportunity to thank the manager for his work over the past 22 years with a book they can sign and write messages to the Frenchman in.
