Gary Neville sends message to Arsenal fans after Arsene Wenger steps down
Gary Neville takes to social media to tell Arsenal fans to give Arsene Wenger an "incredible" send off
Gary Neville has taken to social media to tell Arsenal fans to give Arsene Wenger an “incredible” send off after the Frenchman announced his decision to leave the club at the end of the season.
Wenger confirmed on Friday that he had agreed to step down as Gunners boss to bring an end to his reign at the north London club, which began almost 22 years ago back in 1996.
The Frenchman will remain in charge until the end of the season, before leaving the north London club.
Neville played against Wenger’s Arsenal during his time at Manchester United and the former defender was quick to pay tribute to the Gunners boss via a post on social media on Friday.
Neville wrote on Twitter: “Arsene Wenger built the best teams that I played against in English Football.
“The 98 team was amazing. The biggest compliment is that he played football that made us change the way we played against them.
“He now deserves the most incredible send off from all in the coming weeks.”
Arsenal will take on West Ham United at The Emirates on Sunday in the Premier League as they look to secure a positive result before the first leg of their crunch Europa League clash against Atletico Madrid next week.
The Gunners are currently in sixth place in the Premier League table and on course to miss out on Champions League qualification for the second season running.
They can book their place in the Champions League for next season by winning the Europa League this term.
