Arsene Wenger to step down as Arsenal manager at the end of 2017-18 season

Arsene Wenger has announced he is to step down as manager of Arsenal at the end of the 2017-18 season.

The 68-year-old, moved to the north London club in 1996 and, having signed a new two-year-deal after winning the FA Cup last season, has been under increasing pressure to leave the Emirates in recent years.

Wenger, who has won three Premier League titles and seven FA Cups in his time at the club, said:

"After careful consideration and following discussions with the club, I feel it is the right time for me to step down at the end of the season.

"I am grateful for having had the privilege to serve the club for so many memorable years.

"I managed the club with full commitment and integrity.

"I want to thank the staff, the players, the Directors and the fans who make this club so special.

"I urge our fans to stand behind the team to finish on a high.

"To all the Arsenal lovers take care of the values of the club.

"My love and support for ever."
