Arsenal manager Wenger hopes for peaceful exit against Jose Mourinho

Arsenal manager Wenger hopes for peaceful exit against Jose Mourinho

"At the time he (Sanchez) did not accept our contract offer and the best possible way where we could get something from his departure was to make an exchange for the player of the quality of Mkhitaryan", he said.

Wenger will be facing one of his most bitter rivals in management too.

United will continue to remain unbeaten in the league against the Gunners at Old Trafford for the 11th time in a row. The football world does not permit the existence of another Wenger or [Sir Alex] Ferguson.

It has not always been about the anger and arguments at Old Trafford.

Ferguson's first rant about Wenger came in 1997, the year after he joined Arsenal and began ruffling feathers.

"You know that both of you fight and I think with both of us, we identified highly with our clubs because we stayed for a long time".

While many are looking at the direction of Luis Enrique to succeed Arsene Wenger at Arsenal, one of the legends of the London club, Robert Pires as thrown his weight behind Patrick Vieira to take over from the fellow French gaffer.

Meanwhile, Mourinho has admitted he harbours regrets about his past treatment of Wenger. "This season has been better than last season".

The reality TV star and mother of West's three children also tweeted to defend her husband's right to take the stance on Mr Trump. In his defense, Chance the Rapper offered his controversial support, tweeting that "black people don't have to be democrats".

Mourinho has previously described Wenger as "a voyeur" and a "specialist in failure". Beneath the cold demeanour and unsavoury exchanges including the infamous remark, Mourinho certainly has a lot of respect for the Frenchman as he wished him luck for the future but it will be interesting to see whether that will continue after the full-time whistle is blown.

Their verbal warfare nearly spilt over into fisticuffs in 2014 when Wenger and Mourinho clashed during Chelsea's 2-0 win over Arsenal at Stamford Bridge. And that's a shame because a professional with stability and years in a club can aggregate not only in the team but also fundamentally, which is more important.

"(Dennis) Bergkamp, Thierry (Henry), (Sol) Campbell - awesome team.

We went to Previous Trafford in March 1998 9 factors behind them however with three video games in hand.

"They pushed us to the limit, the two matches we played, not at the Emirates (Stadium), but at the wonderful old stadium (Highbury), unforgettable. So again thank you very much for that, they pushed us to the limits". "Regrets? Little negative episodes". "But I was loyal to this club".

"I think Manchester United fans know that until 2004, for about a decade, that was between Manchester United and Arsenal, between Sir Alex and Mr Wenger".

"I want to go peacefully, with Mourinho as well because he's a great manager".

Jose Mourinho's side are now three points ahead of third-placed Liverpool with a game in hand and a victory over Arsene Wenger's side would put them within the cusp of acquiring the runner-up spot. Manchester United would want to consolidate their second-place in the table while Arsenal needs more than a miracle to finish in the top four. Under his leadership, the team scored 2,285 goals and conceded only 1,219.
