🎥 Arsène Wenger bids an emotional farewell to the Emirates
Arsène Wenger signed off in style on Sunday when Arsenal ran out 5-0 winners over Burnley in his final home match in charge of the club.
It was an emotionally charged atmosphere inside the Emirates Stadium as the Frenchman brought the curtain down on 22 years and 1200 games as Gunners boss.
Before kick-off, the 68-year-old was given a guard of honour by both teams and Clarets boss Sean Dyche.
