Pep Guardiola would not stop Mikel Arteta replacing Arsene Wenger at Arsenal

Wenger was given gifts to mark the day and a guard of honour was once again formed for the Arsenal manager before kick off.

And following the final game of the season at Huddersfield on Sunday, a 1-0 victory to bring Wenger's tenure to an end, the club have stepped up their hunt it seems.

"Of course it is very emotional after 1,235 games for the same club". But I was happy to play for him.

"Do I feel relief?"

"Not really, I'm sad", he said.

It was a handsome day at Huddersfield, as everyone in the stadium rose up as one to applaud Arsene Wenger for his incredible career at Arsenal Football Club.

Vieira captained Arsenal and won three Premier League titles, as well as three FA Cups, during Wenger's most successful spell with the Gunners.

This may sound harsh, but Wenger's successor is going to inherit a squad that is nowhere as good as what Wenger thought it was.

"It was spontaneous because I know that we've disappointed the away fans this season, that many of them they live the whole week and use their spare money to travel up to games", he explained.

Appointing Mikel Arteta as Arsene Wenger's replacement would be another.

Starsport understands Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri is wanted by Arsenal too.

Who is favourite to replace Arsene Wenger as Arsenal manager? "I believe that it was a human adventure for 22 years, and I wish everyone well and a lot of success to my club in the future".

"The team needs some additions and if they get them I think they will compete for the Premier League title".

"I will stay in football for sure". But at the moment, I have not said anything to anybody.

It's a courageous, new, exciting and uncertain world for Arsenal and Arsenal fans, but after complaints about all the old familiar failings, isn't that exactly what people wanted?

The Gunners haven't reached the Champions League quarter-finals since 2010 to highlight their regression under Wenger.
