Celtic insiders are believed to be relaxed about the interest in the 45-year-old and Rodgers himself is in no rush to court further speculation. He is loving life in Glasgow, but also knows the reality of its limitations. In a world where nothing was the way it ought to have been, Arsène Wenger was our knight in shining armour. This club has to rise to the challenge.

Indeed, the two traded barbs throughout the late 1990s and early 2000s, as well as titles, with every Premier League trophy won between 1997-98 and 2003-04 either lifted by Arsenal or United. He was carrying a box full of paperwork, but he stopped to say hello and took time out to talk to my sons and their friends.

"But above all, the privilege to have played for a gentleman like Wenger is most cherished".

Wenger announced on Friday that he will leave the North London club, which brings to an end a relationship that has spanned over two decades. Aaron Ramsey is fit following a shin injury.

Victory came at a crucial juncture for Wenger, who resisted the urge to go out on this high.

"I don't think Wenger's departure will affect him knowing he is a good player and young", Kanu added.

Speaking after United's 2-1 FA Cup semi-final victory over Tottenham at Wembley, Sanchez told reporters: "I texted him yesterday to wish him the best".

"So again, if he's happy with the decision, I'm really happy and I hope he doesn't retire from football".

"Ideally for me, a very experienced manager with a lot of stature".

Other ex-Arsenal players also expressed their gratitude to Wenger on social media.

"Of course, when someone of [Wenger's] standing decides that he's going to move on then, of course, speculation begins straight away". "He made history, and he has to be recognised for that". "He was like a father and the team was like family".

"That's not to say he wants to jump from his Celtic project just yet".

Wenger's men sit 6th on the log, 14 points behind fourth place but still have a chance of qualifying for next season's Champions League if they win the Premier League.

"It's a sad day for me".

So the old boy has finally gone. Three Premier League titles, the unbeaten 2003/04 season and a record breaking seven FA Cups.
