Arsene Wenger says he is "super sad" to be leaving Arsenal following his side’s Europa League semi-final defeat to Atletico Madrid – and outlined what his replacement must do to succeed.
The Gunners suffered a 1-0 defeat at the Wanda Metropolitano on Thursday night after Diego Costa’s goal won it for the hosts.
The Frenchman will now leave the club at the end of the season, without handing Arsenal Champions League football, after 22 years in charge of the north Londoners.
Speaking the day after the defeat, Wenger told Sky Sports : "All the love stories come to an end and they do not always finish well. Most of the time they do not finish well. I am super sad. The next day is always worse than on the night.
"I feel sad because I love this club. You don’t give 20 years of your life and walk away easy. My successor will need to make this club the priority of his life and commit completely and totally like he owns the club. There is no other way."
Wenger’s last home game will be on Sunday when Arsenal take on Burnley. The Gunners boss is expected to a receive a guard of honour as he bids farewell to the fans.
