Wenger shows his class by handing young Arsenal fan a gift

Arsene Wenger proved he really is a class act by handing a young Arsenal fan his tie after his final home game in charge of the club.

The Gunners boss, who will stand down at the end of the season after 22 years in charge, spotted the boy holding a sign asking for his tie while doing a lap of honour following Arsenal’s 5-0 win over Burnley.

Without skipping a beat the Frenchman leaped over the advertising hoardings running around the perimeter of the ground and handed the boy his tie.

He then returned to the pitch where he continued his lap of honour to the sound of Gunners supporters loudly singing: "There’s only one Arsene Wenger".

The Arsenal team did Wenger proud in his final game in charge at home on Sunday, sticking five past Burnley without reply.

After the game Wenger was welcomed onto the pitch, where he spoke to the fans.

"Thank you very much," he began. "Before I start I just want to say I wish my fellow manager Alex Ferguson well in his recovery very quickly.

"Thank you for having me for such a long time. Like you I am an Arsenal fan.

"It is a way of life. It is caring about the beautiful game. We care, we worry, we are desperate but when you come here dreams are realised.

"I would ask you to support these players and the staff left behind. This group has a special quality on and off the pitch. Support them next season because they deserve it."

Wenger will take charge of two more games as Arsenal boss before standing down after his side visit Leicester City and then Huddersfield on the last day of the season.
