Didn't see him leaving before the end of his contract but it's the right move for all concerned I think. Wonder will he pack it in or have a go back in France. I can't see him finishing up yet, football seems to be his life

Awww , what a manager. May have enjoyed a good moan, but who doesn't !!
Nothing but respect for the man. Changed English football .
Himself and Ferguson , and theirs teams, defined that early PL era. Great rivalry.

End of an era, but the right time for it.

Will miss him in the league.

The fans haven't been showing up of late, the board need to sell tickets, I'd say he was told to pack his bags.

That period from 97-03 was the most enjoyable for me as a fan. The rivalry was incredible and some of the football and drama was amazing. Wenger was a brilliant manager at the time and really changed the approach to football in England

The right decision but still sad to see him leave. Legend and one of the best the league has or ever will see.

The recent FA cup wins have done little to convince some Arsenal fans he should have left about 5 years ago.

He'll be missed though, was a pioneer in his day but football has moved on and he got left behind.

Wenger has been Arsenal manager nearly as long as I can remember. Sad to see him go.

It says he's leaving but not retiring. Wonder if he'd be an option for a PSG, or a national team job somewhere...

Will rightly go down as one of the greatest to ever grace the Premier League, and has a strong claim to being one of the first to come in and revolutionise how managers did things.

how they trained.
how they prepared.
how you can win and still stick to your ideals.

the last while has been rough, but he deserves to be remembered fondly.

I do believe he stayed too long.
I do believe Arsenal is his life, and it became very unhealthy.
I do believe he is fúcking stubborn, and felt in the end that he was entitled to stay as long as he wanted because he 'built the club'.

but he should be given the respect he deserves.

i suspect the Emirates will be a different place for the last few games now.

This is great news yet also makes me sad. I had only started secondary school when he started and now I'm in my mid thirties. Would love him to win the Europa now before he leaves now.

Long long overdue, it's somewhat tarnished his legacy that he stuck around a bit too long and the vitriol towards him has been understandable and justified (to a point) but it's the end of an era all the same and all the good he did for the club before the stagnation set in should still be acknowledged.

Be interesting to see who they go after to replace him.

Doing it now and make it public will surely raise a few eyebrows from a few managers that might fancy a crack at one of the biggest jobs in football.
