The 66-year old manager further added that he encouraged Arsenal to organise a tour to India, but it never came to fruitition.

Jack Wilshere missed Arsenal's 3-1 defeat to Leicester City in the last outing due to the birth of his daughter, and he could be set for a return.

Dailymail reports that while addressing the crowd, Wenger spoke of his pride for the charity work the club now do, which has grown from small, local efforts to the global foundation that raises millions for projects worldwide every year.

- This was Arsene Wenger's 1235th and final game as Arsenal manager - his final record with the Gunners was W707 D280 L248.

Arsene Wenger has tipped Ainsley Maitland-Niles and Eddie Nketiah to become regulars in the Arsenal first-team next season. "These contradictions which I don't really understand, I would love to see it for myself", he said.

Wenger, 68, said that a new elite competition was imminent as big clubs across Europe were unhappy with the current distribution of revenue from domestic TV income with their smaller counterparts.

The problem is generally in the large corporate side, while branches across the country by and large are corruption free, he said. The government holds a little over 65 per cent stake in Allahabad Bank and close to 62 per cent in the Punjab National Bank .

Silva was signed by Wenger in 2002 and spent six seasons under the former Nagoya Grampus and Monaco boss, winning the Premier League and FA Cup, while the Brazilian was a Champions League runner-up with Arsenal in 2005-06.

The final whistle blew, the Gunners ended their torrid seven-game away run without a win and the curtain was drawn on the Arsene Wenger era after 22 years. "Wenger held out his hand to give myself and all the other mascots a high-five and an enormous sense of pride rushed through me".

- The John Smith's Stadium was the 48th different ground Wenger won at in the Premier League - more than any other manager in the competition (Alex Ferguson 47).

"It will be hard to adjust of course but I will have to deal with that. We need two or three additions and after that I believe the team will compete for the Premier League".

His Gunners journey nearly at an end, Wenger returned to the pitch long after the final whistle and sought out the last remaining Arsenal fans. "He is Arsenal and I am an Arsenal fan so he has got a lot of love on my part".

The football will be a mere side story, with Arsenal immovable in sixth and Huddersfield already safe.
