Mourinho Not Done With Wenger Yet Despite Resignation From Arsenal

Wenger joined Arsenal from Japanese football outfit Nagoya Grampus Eight in 1996 and went on to win three Premier League titles, seven FA Cups and seven Community Shield trophies during his 22-year reign. The midfielder has never been able to win over the club's supporters completely but has managed to survive two managerial sackings and has grew in prominence ever since Jose took over at the club in the summer of 2016. "At the moment I am in a bit of unknown territory", said Wenger.

The league defines a full strength team as one picked from the club's official 25-man PL squad.

Wenger was applauded to the dug-out by United fans — "Once you are not a danger any more, people love you", he said — and received a vase from Ferguson before kickoff.

"It's a sickener but overall I believe the positive performance was there, and some players stood up to the level that was requested and showed a big quality", he told Arsenal Player after the game.

"I hope that I play against him again, I hope that can happen", said Mourinho.




The result ensured Arsenal can not finish above north London rival Tottenham and guaranteed United a top-four finish and a spot in next season's Champions League.

The feeling among those who know him is that Wenger is coming round to the idea of bossing France, having also been offered the job on numerous occasions during his time with the Gunners.

Another four from their final three games against Brighton, West Ham and Watford will secure second place and their highest finish since Sir Alex Ferguson retired in 2013.

By then, United was 1-0 ahead thanks to Paul Pogba's 16th-minute goal.

As well as Arsenal, Huddersfield face Manchester City and Chelsea in their last three games and sit 16th, three points above the relegation zone.
