How the world received Wenger’s exit from Arsenal

The global football fraternity continues to share tributes to Arsene Wenger following his announcement that end his stay at the helm of English Premier League side Arsenal.

Wenger, 68, who has been in charge of the Gunners for the past 21 years, will leave his position as manager in May 2018.

After a successful start to his Arsenal career which included overseeing an unbeaten league campaign in 2002, Wenger has struggled with a series of disappointing results over the past decade leading to increasing pressure over his tenure at the Emirates stadium.

“After careful consideration and following discussions with the club, I feel it is the right time for me to step down at the end of the season,” Wenger said in a statement posted on the club’s website.

Arsenal did not immediately announce Wenger’s successor, but are expected to do so in the coming weeks.
