Arsene Wenger waving goodbye

Arsenal’s plans ahead of Arsene Wenger’s final home game as manager

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

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.

Match programme

Tomorrow’s match programme will feature tributes to Wenger, including those from Thierry Henry, Pat Rice, Ken Friar, Patrick Vieira, Sir Alex Ferguson and many others.

Also inside the programme will be a Wenger Brochure, featuring an in-depth look at every season under the boss and a whole host of infographics looking at an array of stats, quotes and facts, according to
