Arsene Wenger Calls Manchester United's Farewell Tribute to Him 'Very Classy'

Adjust Comment Print

I am disappointed. I am thankful to Man United because they had a nice gesture. "I have come here for a long, long time and next year somebody else will be on the bench and will get a very hostile reception as well, don't worry!" It was very classy from Manchester United.

Arsene Wenger endured more agony at Old Trafford as his depleted Arsenal side conceded an injury-time goal by Marouane Fellaini to lose, 2-1, to Manchester United in Premier League soccer action Sunday.

Not to be perturbed, United attempted the exact same approach less than three minutes later and this time Fellaini managed to guide his backwards header beyond the outstretched arm of David Ospina...

"I think we did it fantastically well as a club - because it was the club that did it - but I felt it would mean more Sir Alex coming down than myself", Mourinho said.

"The players are destroyed because they gave everything and were caught in the final minute. I wait a bit more". "It was a negative result and a positive performance".

Wenger's rivalry with United looked to be ending with a point apiece after Henrikh Mkhitaryan cancelled out Paul Pogba's opener.

Asked about his future, Iniesta added: "There are still things to be sorted". And his skills in a team should have won him this accolade.

And, with the Red Devils set to lock horns with Chelsea in the FA Cup on 19 May, Jose Mourinho's men will now be hoping Lukaku has not sustained any serious damage.

There seemed to be a fight about Arsenal of which they've lacked in recent seasons, though it was United who had the next best moment.

Speaking exclusively to MUTV after the game, Lindelof said: "We always want to play in the Champions League".

With a trip to Madrid to face Atletico on Thursday in the second leg of their Europa League semi-final, poised at 1-1, Wenger rang the changes, bringing in several fringe players and handing a debut to 21-year-old Greek defender Konstantinos Mavropanos.

Wenger, no doubt as crushed by this defeat as much as any other - regardless of the pre-match largesse from his hosts - made straight for the tunnel at the final whistle. The problem is on his foot.

"I think a player that grabs the crest after scoring is telling clearly that he wants to stay", he added. The match victor now revealed what Jose Mourinho told him before his substitution.
