"A football team is like a handsome woman".
"Just seen the news about Arsene stepping down at the end of the season". The latest individual to pay glowing tributes to Wenger is one of his greatest rivals in the game, Alex Ferguson.
The Italian has three Champions League titles to his name as a coach and has won the league in Italy, France, Germany and England. Despite three FA Cups in the last four seasons, calls for his resignation have steadily grown, and reached a peak this season as the Gunners limp toward their worst league finish of Wenger's reign.

"The foundations of this club have never been stronger and this gives me great confidence as we begin to chart the path ahead".

As a long standing and long suffering Arsenal fan, my feelings on Wenger's impending exit is a mixed one. "I respect him for what a good football man he is".
The guessing game surrounding Wenger's successor is already picking up steam, with many debating whether the club should appoint a former player with connections to the club - such as Patrick Vieira, who Wenger mentioned on Thursday - or hire a more experienced name.
