Arsenal fans and the wider football community have taken to Twitter to share their views on his resignation, express appreciation for his service to the club, and to give him a sendoff.
Many users on the social media platform wished him well and thanked him not only for his work at Arsenal, but his contribution to association football in the UK.
Glad to see the majority saying this already, but #ArseneWenger now deserves an incredible send-off from not only #Arsenal fans but the rest of football too. Incredible impact and tenure in the English game.— Pete Graves (@PeteGravesSky) April 20, 2018
Arsène Wenger has been the face of Arsenal since before I was born. He not only revolutionised Arsenal Football Club but English football as a whole. It's a shame it's had to end like this, but the fans & the players have to unite to give him the send off he deserves.— Patrick Timmons (@PatrickTimmons1) April 20, 2018
One user even suggested that Mr. Wenger deserves to have a statue of himself built and placed outside of Arsenal F.C.’s stadium, tweeting to the club's official Twitter account.

Remember to tell your son and grandsons that a certain coach, Arsene Wenger won the EPL without losing a single match.— Akinboye Akinpelumi (@pelumi_akinboye) April 20, 2018
In the space of 22 years, Arsenal F.C. played over 1,200 matches under Wenger’s management, winning 7 FA Cups and 7 Community Shields in the process.
In the club’s most notable season under his leadership, in the 2003-2004 season, they won the Premier League without losing a single match.
