Video: Arsenal Fan Sings Farewell to Arsene Wenger to the Tune of a James Blunt Classic

With Arsene Wenger set to leave Arsenal at the end of the season, the club’s fan base have been afforded the perfect opportunity to give the 68-year-old the perfect send off.

And by perfect send off, we mean this Wenger-themed version of James Blunt’s 2004 classic hit, Goodbye My Lover.

Yes brought to you from the same bloke who penned the hilarious Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang tune, here’s an emotionally-charged farewell to Arsenal’s longest-serving manager.

We doubt there would be a dry eye in the house if fans start singing this one at the Emirates:

Some effort!

Arsenal take on Atletico Madrid in the first-leg of their Europa League semi-final tonight, a competition which could allow Wenger to leave the club on a high with his first piece of European silverware.

And Wenger’s cause has been helped with Mesut Ozil, Jack Wilshere and goalkeeper Petr Cech all having passed late fitness tests ahead of kick-off.
