Arsenal fans respond to Theo Walcott's tweet about Arsene Wenger

Wenger brought a new style and attention to detail to English football when he arrived in 1996

The 68-year-old will step down as Arsenal boss at the end of the season after more than 21 years in the role.

"I am really happy for Arsene Wenger", he told United's official website.

"His achievements at Arsenal are a testimony to his commitment and love for the club". Rodgers would be the flawless man to keep the outrage going, despite you know, being a decent manager. I urge our fans to stand behind the team to finish on a high. He paid tribute to the Frenchman for the way he "came in and changed everything about Arsenal Football Club", by bringing in new training programmes, diets, fitness regimes - and a completely new way of playing football.

Arsenal chief executive Ivan Gazidis believes he is now faced with an impossible task in finding a fitting replacement for outgoing manager Arsene Wenger.

Football was famously far more important than life or death for Liverpool manager Bill Shankly - but Arsene Wenger took obsession with the handsome game to a whole new level. "Thanks for the memories and hopefully we can win the Europa League to give him the best send-off possible". According to soccer pundits, Wenger really lost it when he started recruiting skillful but tiny, feeble and less passionate players.

"But I want that to be in-house. He now deserves the most incredible send off from all in the coming weeks". In accordance with Arsenal values and our respect for this man, we haven't had any discussions around that.

David Seaman, Wenger's first-choice goalkeeper for the two doubles, admitted he was pleased the Arsenal boss was departing on his own terms rather than being axed or forced out by fans disappointed with their recent struggles.

"It is quite emotional".

Good Morning Britain presenter Piers Morgan, 53, who has been vocal about his desire for the manager to resign for a long time, revealed that he was on a plane to Scotland when he heard the news this morning.

Former Arsenal captains Robin van Persie and Cesc Fabregas, who both played under Wenger, described the coach as a "father figure".

Gazidis also stressed the importance of Wenger's qualities as a person as well as a manager, citing how the Frenchman inspired George Weah to become the best footballer in the world and helped give the Liberian the conviction to become president of his homeland in the future.

"The very first day he came, we were like, 'This is our manager? The team has to win the Europa League, it would be an fantastic achievement and Arsene never won in Europe before so it would be a great way to give him a good exit".

"He is, without doubt, one of the greatest Premier League managers and I am proud to have been a rival, a colleague and a friend to such a great man".

On Friday, Mourinho said he hoped Wenger did not retire from football. I've followed his managerial career.
