Afterwards, Wenger refused to countenance taking up another managerial role until he has finished at Arsenal.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has hinted that the disunity among fans of the club was a factor in his impending exit.

The Frenchman was at pains to ensure that he does not intend to sow further discontent with the fans, claiming that he is "not resentful" with them. "Winning the Europa League would be a ideal send-off for him", he told Sky Sports. That was hurtful because I feel the club is respected over the world and, overall, the image we gave from our club is not what it is - and not what I like.

Arsenal are on course to finish lower than ever under Wenger in the Premier League as they remain in sixth, six points adrift of Chelsea. "I just feel if my personality is in the way of what I think our club should be, for me that is more important than me".

Former Barcelona boss Luis Enrique would be the "perfect fit" to replace Arsene Wenger at the Emirates Stadium, according to an Arsenal legend. "For kids who play in Africa, China, America, all our clubs have a responsibility in that sense".

But there were only sporadic chants of "there's only one Arsene Wenger" from the home support, whilst, continuing a trend in recent home games, empty seats could be seen around the Emirates. "If sometimes they make me happy as well, I take it". Even when it was the wrong decision it was always with one priority and to do well with the club.

"I tried to influence the club on structure, development of players and style of play".

The win for Arsenal is a ideal warm up ahead of Thursday's Europa League semifinal clash with Atletico Madrid. "He brought me here as a 17-year-old and I owe him a lot".

Wenger's relations with the club's fan base have been increasingly rocky, particularly as Arsenal have failed to get beyond the Champions League last 16 since 2010 and failed to qualify for it altogether this season. "I don't need to die any more because I know what it's like..."

It proved to be an afternoon to sum up the latter years of Wenger's reign - questionable defending, overplaying in attack and some players in the starting line-up who could not lay a finger on his title-winning teams of old.
