Arsenal make contact with club legend amid links with management role

After 22 years of dedicated service at the helm, Arsene Wenger bid farewell as manager of Arsenal.

That is certainly the feeling given by Petr Cech in a recent interview where he revealed that he thinks the club should appoint Arsene Wenger's successor as soon as possible. 'It was important we won this game for him.

Former Chelsea FC defender Burley isn't impressed with the managers who have been linked with the vacant position.

Huddersfield were fitting hosts for the occasion.

The decisive goal came when Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang slid in at the back post to convert a low cross from Aaron Ramsey in the 38th minute but the match itself was nearly an afterthought on a day when Wenger said goodbye to his club and English football.

Sometimes it takes somebody else to tell you something you know deep down, and there was an acknowledgement of that in Sunday's news conference when he said "Maybe it's time.", when referring to his departure.

Patrick Vieira and Julian Nagelsmann, the Hoffenheim coach, also fit the bill if Arsenal decide on a young coach.

The Gunners are now looking to appoint a replacement for Arsene Wenger, after the Frenchman stepped down from his post of 22 years following Sunday's 1-0 win at Huddersfield Town. Do I feel relief?

"It was a good day for everyone with Huddersfield staying up too", said Wenger.

"Yes I had offers, yes, of course".

Mikel Arteta retired two years ago to join Pep Guardiola's coaching team at Manchester City and helped deliver the Premier League title to the Etihad Stadium this season.

Arsenal fans are growing impatient and it would appear even the players want answers now that the 2017/18 Premier League season has concluded.
