Arsene Wenger is still an absolute hero to many Arsenal supporters.
The legendary Frenchman played a massive part in making us the global brand we are today, and we couldn’t thank him enough for everything he did over the last two decades.
Arsenal replaced him with Unai Emery and that flopped. Mikel Arteta then came in and has made us much better. We’ve already won the FA Cup and the Community Shield, and if things go our way, we might end up winning this season’s Europa League as well.
The Gunners take on Benfica later today and it is a must-win game. Our position in the league is not promising at all and it looks like the Europa League is our best opportunity to make our way into next season’s Champions League.
Arsenal will definitely go into tonight’s game as favourites and Wenger echoed that last night. However, he admitted that he wasn’t speaking objectively as his beloved former club will always be the favoruites for him.
He said on beIN Sports: “For me they (Arsenal) are favourites. For me, they are the favourites in every single game. So, I’m not very objective there.”
You can take the man out of Arsenal but you cannot take Arsenal out of the man.
Arsenal fans absolutely loved Wenger’s comments yesterday. Here’s how a few of them reacted on Twitter.
