The best Arsène Wenger jokes as Arsenal boss announces departure at end of season

Gunners set for first new manager in 22 years.


These were the best Arsène Wenger jokes as the long-serving Arsenal manager announced his decision to step down at the end of this season.

After 22 years in charge, Wenger has the chance to end his reign with a victory in next month’s Europa League final – assuming the Gunners get there.

Recent seasons have seen the Frenchman come in for plenty of criticism as Arsenal have fallen further and further off the pace in the Premier League, but he has nevertheless won three FA Cups in the last four years.

Most Arsenal fans will choose to remember him for his pioneering early years at the club, culminating with 2003-04’s ‘Invincibles’ season when they won the title without losing a match.

But the Wenger era became a source of angst during a trophy-less spell that lasted over a decade up until the recent spate of FA Cups.

Nevertheless, younger fans are about to enter the unknown – an Arsenal side under a manager other than Wenger.

As reaction continues to pour in, enjoy this selection of the best Arsène Wenger jokes so far:

I'm sure it's very sad for Arsene Wenger, but there's nothing quite like handing your notice in at work. Just 6 weeks of going on the internet and deleting Julie's emails about recycling.

Sad news about Arsene Wenger. My only hope is that some good comes of it – a new lease of life for the team, or Piers Morgan setting fire to his house with the friction of his furious masturbation today.

Nobody has said “Arson Wanger” yet. Come on, Twitter.
