Arsene Wenger has thanked Alan Pardew following the Newcastle manager’s recent praise of the Arsenal boss.

The Magpies manager claimed that Emirates Stadium should be named after the Frenchman for the job that he has done at the north London club.

And Wenger expressed is gratitude for Pardew’s comments ahead of Newcastle’s trip to Emirates Stadium on Saturday evening.

“Look, I’m very thankful for compliments, but I don’t want anything,” said Wenger.

“I wan’t just one thing, to do well my job for this club and that’s what I always try to do.”

Wenger also warned his side that they are in for a tough test against the Magpies, who became the first team to beat Chelsea this season last weekend.

“They had a great result last week,” he continued.

“They are doing well and are on a good run, so it will be a very interesting challenge for us.

“But I think we have a good dynamic in our team – we won four of our last five games, the one blip was against Stoke, but overall I think we are on a good trend.”
