“I do not want to say too much now, but as I said on Friday I am grateful for having had the privilege to serve the club with full commitment and integrity for so many memorable years.”

“For now, there are still seven football matches to play this season — hopefully eight if we can triumph over Atletico [Madrid] — and my immediate thoughts have to be about these games, starting with West Ham today.”

Wenger, who led the club for 22 years, also addressed when he might reveal details of his departure in an interview with Sky Sports, ahead of his side’s 4-1 win over West Ham United.

“I will come out on that a bit later but at the moment it is important to focus on what matters. That means the results in the next games. After the game we have another game. After the season maybe.”

Arsenal’s last scheduled match is May 13 at Huddersfield Town in league action.
