Club board members and Wenger were all singing from the same sheet yesterday.

Chief executive Ivan Gazidis heaped praise on Wenger for his incredible 22-year service which delivered three titles, seven FA Cups and that amazing Invincibles season in 2003/2004.
Gazidis would not be drawn on the conversations which led to the Frenchman’s imminent departure.

In it, Wenger said: “After careful consideration and following discussions with the club, I feel it is the right time for me to step down at the end of the season.

“I managed the club with full commitment and integrity.
“I want to thank the staff, the players, the directors and the fans who make this club so special.”

Gazidis said: “The decision had to happen at some point.Gazidis said: “The decision had to happen at some point.
