Frank Lampard admits he was pleased to see Arsene Wenger so happy at the final whistle after Arsenal’s FA Cup final win over Chelsea last weekend.

The Frenchman watched his side end the season on a high as they produced an impressive performance to beat the Premier League champions 2-1 at Wembley.

Goals from Alexis Sanchez and Aaron Ramsey wrapped up the win for the Gunners despite Diego Costa’s equaliser and handed Arsenal their third FA Cup win in four years.

Wenger’s future has been a relentless source of speculation in recent weeks as the Frenchman approaches the end of his current deal at The Emirates.

However, Chelsea legend Lampard insisted that he was just pleased to see Wenger so happy after the final whistle at Wembley.

Speaking to BBC Sport after the game, Lampard said: “It was a huge win.

“It will be interesting to see what Wenger does now but he has to enjoy the moment.

“He looked like a young kid at the final whistle and for him personally that’s nice to see, because he’s been under a lot of pressure.”

It has been a disappointing season for the Gunners in the Premier League, with the north London side having missed out on a top-four finish in the Premier League and having to settle for a place in next season’s Europa League.
