Moyes warns Wenger's successor 'it will be tough'

Moyes warns Wenger's successor 'it will be tough'

Most parents will tell you they don't have a favourite child, that they love all of their sons and daughters equally.

"Arsene earned his position at the club over 22 years".

Wenger issued a statement on Friday that caught everyone by surprise, announcing his departure and thanking the club for letting him serve for "so many memorable years".

Mesut Ozil was rested against Newcastle and he was sorely missed so I think he could come in on Sunday with youngster Joe Willock dropping out following his full league debut.

The guessing game surrounding Wenger's successor is already picking up steam, with many debating whether the club should appoint a former player with connections to the club - such as Patrick Vieira, who Wenger mentioned on Thursday - or hire a more experienced name.

Mourinho's rivalry with Wenger dates from the younger manager's arrival at Chelsea as a self-proclaimed "Special One" in 2004.

Results soon arrived on the pitch as Wenger's men beat an all-conquering Manchester United side to the title in 1997-98 and won the league again four years later.

That was it. Wiltord's goal stood up as the victor and Arsenal clinched their second Premier League title under Wenger, just four days after beating Chelsea in the FA Cup final.

And Gazidis, who has been with Arsenal since November 2008, insisted there would be no "replacement" for Wenger, but instead a "new path forward" for the club. "One day he has to manage a big team in Europe or the Premier League - that's what he's working towards, that's what he expects". For his innovative approach to the game, Wenger was nicknamed the "Professor".

'Thank you for what you've done for us at Arsenal and the football world.

The news was announced on Friday morning, with Wenger set to depart 12 months into a two-year deal.

But then, in the past few seasons, there has been a gradual decline in the club's performance. While Wenger himself admits the Premier League is a huge step up, there is a significant American and/or MLS flavor in the Arsenal board room.

In the aftermath of that Champions League decider against Barcelona, he added: "The last match they played at Highbury was the last game they played before the Champions League final in Paris in 2006". They followed that up with a victory at home versus Spurs, and a pair of 2-0 wins over Ipswich Town and West Ham United.

Their only realistic chance of qualifying for next season is by winning the second-tier Europa League - the Gunners face Spanish giants Atletico Madrid in the semi-finals - and Wenger has urged the fans to get behind the club.

In the meantime, Manchester United and Arsenal began battling it out at the top of the league. "Out of respect for this man we haven't had any discussions to date".

Wenger himself gave no hint whatsoever during Thursday's news conference that he was about to step down and has previously said he would respect his contract.
