Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger predicts 'inevitable' European super league

Wenger arrived from Japan in 1996 and the three-time Premier League victor will farewell Arsenal when the Gunners face Huddersfield Town on the final day of the season on Sunday.

Arsenal are set to miss out on a top-four finish for the second successive season.

A 3-1 defeat at Leicester on Wednesday night means Arsenal have an identical away record to already-relegated West Brom this season, winning just three games on the road and taking three points away from the Emirates Stadium since the turn of the year.

Gone were the "Wenger out" taunts that followed him in recent years.

Arsene Wenger admitted it was an emotional occasion to watch his Arsenal side beat Huddersfield Town in his final match as manager.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger on his protracted farewell: "I enjoyed some aspects of it, yes - and not all".

"He has been monumental for the club and leaves it in a much, much better place than when he took over".

He confirmed TV reports that three people, including a child, were inside the fifth-floor flat at the time of the blast. The third was detonated outside the Surabaya Central Pentecost Church.

There was something to celebrate at the climax to an otherwise miserably lackluster final season in charge, with Arsenal finishing sixth in the Premier League - the lowest under Wenger.

The final whistle blew, the Gunners ended their torrid seven-game away run without a win and the curtain was drawn on the Arsene Wenger era after 22 years.

"I am sad", Wenger said.

Arsène Wenger gave away a little more on what he intends to do next in an interview with SFR Sport that aired today, on the day in which his Arsenal career officially came to an end.

'We're going to be giving all the pieces on the pitch to guarantee that occurs after which we'll see what occurs. Since I have arrived here this club has grown on the football front of course but as well on the charity work.

Wenger, who leaves the Gunners this summer after 22 years in charge, predicts that a competition between Europe's biggest clubs will see the Premier League played during midweek and a new competition played on weekends. "He is Arsenal and I am an Arsenal fan so he has got a lot of love on my part".

The Arsenal Foundation Ball is a charity event which raises funds for many projects supported locally by the club, as well as some overseas too.
