"But above all, I am like you, I am an Arsenal fan".

As you might expect, the club themselves also laid on a special farewell, with the current squad using their shirts to deliver personal messages of thanks to for the departing Frenchman.

"I've met people for whom I am the only Arsenal manager they have known, so now this is a good opportunity for the club to have new people and new ideas to continue to move the club forward, which is what I've tried to do my whole life".

A 1-0 defeat to Atletico Madrid on Thursday in the Europa League semi-finals means that for the second consecutive season, Arsenal will not even qualify for the Champions League.

Wenger and Arsenal have been coy about what directly prompted his departure with a season remaining on his contract.

Wenger was given a guard of honour from both teams and the match officials before kickoff, and received roars of support throughout the match from the home fans, most of whom had donned their complementary red "Merci Arsene" T-shirts.

Their European tour might not last very long, it might end before the Premier League season restarts, but the Burnley fans will still get a European away trip - every bottom half club's dream.

The north London side have struggled to challenge for the Premier League title in recent years, and they have not won the trophy since their famous unbeaten triumph in the 2003-04 campaign.

Wenger said in in his prematch interview that the Germany global has "a recurrence of his back problem", and added: "How long is he out, I don't know".

As he said, "One day I'll go up to heaven and He will ask 'What have you done with your life?' The only answer I have will be, 'I tried to win football games'".

"The Arsene Wenger era is one that Arsenal fans will never forget", said a special 60-page supplementary programme given to supporters.

"I don't know [about a break]", Wenger added. I hope to see you soon.
