Manchester United presented Arsene Wenger with a thoughtful gift ahead of the Frenchman’s last match as Arsenal manager at Old Trafford. Wenger’s day got off to a disappointing start as Paul Pogba opened the scoring from close-range after Alexis Sanchez’s header struck the woodwork.

The Gunners got themselves back into the match as Henrikh Mkhitaryan arrowed a powerful shot past David De Gea but Maroune Fellaini scored a winner for United at the death. Following Arsenal’s defeat, Wenger thanked United for the reception he received ahead of kick-off and the heartfelt message engraved on the vase he was presented with has been revealed.

‘Presented to Arsene Wenger by Sir Alex Ferguson CBE and Jose Mourinho on behalf of Manchester United Football Club,’ it reads. ‘In recognition of his service to and achievements at Arsenal Football Club 1996 – 2018.’

Mourinho thanked United’s home support for the applause Wenger received in the moments leading up to kick-off on Sunday afternoon. ‘It’s my day off tomorrow, I want to go to London, he has a big match waiting for him,’ the Portuguese following United’s win.

‘I’m happy the class my club showed towards him. ‘I told the club I’d like Sir Alex to present the award because he was the real rival, I hope i play against him again.’
