Manchester United v Arsenal: How Wenger was hailed by fans at Old Trafford
Outgoing Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger was warmly greeted by Manchester United fans on Sunday.
The Frenchman was also presented with a gift by former United boss, Alex Ferguson on his final visit to Old Trafford.
The 68-year-old and Ferguson were fierce rivals for many years as Arsenal and United battled for Premier League supremacy.
Ferguson greeted Wenger on the touchline before kick-off before presenting him with a glass momento alongside current United manager Jose Mourinho.
Mourinho has also had his spats with Wenger, most famously describing him as a “specialist in failure.”
It was all smiles as the Portuguese and Wenger enjoyed a warm embrace before kick-off while Wenger was applauded by the United support.
“It made the Premier League.
“Virtually every game we played against Arsenal, there was a real edge to the match. There were confrontations, because there were two teams and two managers battling for one award: the Premier League.
“In my time, we had a few arguments but I always did really respect the man because he did a fantastic job at his club.
