Video: Huddersfield and Arsenal Fans Give Arsene Wenger Unforgettable Ovation

Video: Huddersfield and Arsenal Fans Give Arsene Wenger Unforgettable Ovation

Arsene Wenger was given an incredible standing ovation by not only Arsenal fans but Huddersfield’s too, as the Frenchman brings the curtain down on 22 years as manager of the Gunners.

The long goodbye has been ongoing ever since Wenger’s departure was announced several weeks ago, and Wenger was given a pretty good send-off by supporters at the club’s Emirates Stadium last weekend.

But playing his final match away from home, Wenger couldn’t have possibly expected the kind of reception he received from the Huddersfield crowd – many of whom will still be on cloud nine following their draw away at Chelsea earlier this week, which secured their Premier League status.

On 22 minutes, the crowd stood in unison to applaud Wenger, as a mark of his 22 years of service, and there were plenty of banners of support and tribute in amongst the home crowd.

Moreover, Wenger looked on as plane even flew over the stadium with a banner reading: ‘Merci Arsene, we’ll miss you too’.

All in all, it’ll be a pretty emotional day for Wenger, but at least he’s gone out on a pretty high note, eh?
