Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger delivered a heartfelt speech as he bode farewell to the Emirates Stadium on Sunday.

The Frenchman took charge of his final home match against Burnley ahead of him leaving the club at the end of the current campaign.

And he spoke to the Emirates crowd following their impressive 5-0 victory over Sean Dyche’s men.

“I will always be an Arsenal fan. It is what unites us in every cell of our body, those dreams and worries,” Wenger said.

“I would like to thank everyone at the club who makes this club so special.

“This group of players has special quality, not only on the pitch, but off it too. Support them next season, because they deserve it.

“I will miss you. Thank you for being such an important part of my life. I hope to see you soon.

“Thank you for having me for such a long time but above all, I’m like you – I’m an Arsenal fan.”
