Sir Alex Ferguson has beautiful words about for manager Arsène Wenger, who on Friday announced at the end of the season to leave Arsenal. The former coach of Manchester United has a lot of respect for the career of the Frenchman.
The 68-year-old Wenger acts since 1996 as a trainer of Arsenal and had thus a long period of time to do with Ferguson, who from 1986 to 2013 at the helm at Manchester United.
“He is without doubt one of the greatest managers in the history of the Premier League. I am proud that I was both a rival, colleague and a friend, I may be of him,” said Ferguson on Friday against the BBC.
In his time at Arsenal won Wenger three Premier League titles and a record seven FA Cups, but the last years were the results of the ‘Gunners’ very disappointing. Arsenal rake in every season, early in the title and also in the Champions League continued success.
Despite the growing criticism extended to the French coach last year, his contract until mid-2019, but after this season comes after 22 years so still an end to the Wenger era at Arsenal.
