Arsene Wenger has received a special gift from former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson, with Jose Mourinho to honor the departing Arsenal chief.
The Frenchman will leave the Emirates Stadium at the end of the season and his final match at Old Trafford in charge of the Gunners was excellently marked with one-time fierce adversary Sir Alex and Mourinho presenting a vase before kick-off.
The message on the silver memento reads: “Presented to Arsene Wenger by Sir Alex Ferguson CBE and Jose Mourinho on behalf of Manchester United Football Club in recognition of the service to and achievements at Arsenal Football Club 1996-2018.”
Current Reds boss, Mourinho also joined in the convivial back-slapping with the cameras capturing a special, and rather emotional, moment between three of the all-time great managers football has ever seen.
The home faithful gave Wenger a deserved ovation as the stadium rose to acclaim his 22 years in charge at Arsenal.
There was also a warm reception when he emerged from the tunnel for the second half as the Reds won 2-1, thanks to Marouane Fellaini’s late header.
