No fairytale ending for Wenger

by Darren Hassennally

A first half strike from Diego Costa helped see Atletico Madrid across the finish line and into the Europa League final in Lyon in 12 days time at the expense of Arsene Wenger’s Arsenal side.

The Europa League presented the only shot at silverware that Arsene Wenger could bow out of Arsenal with, but was not to be the case as his side lost 1-0 at the Wanda Metropolitano and 2-1 on aggregate.

Arsene Wenger admitted he was sad after yesterday’s defeat

This bitter blow means that Wenger cannot add a European cup to his three Premier League titles, seven Community Shields and seven FA cups and Wenger admitted after that he sad with the defeat.

“I am like the team, very sad and very disappointed, even very frustrated,”

Wenger added “I have to recover first from a huge disappointment. I’m very, very sad to leave the club with that exit. It is very difficult to take but there are some good ingredients in our team and they will bounce back.”

Despite being knocked yesterday, Arsenal’s longest serving and most successful manager Wenger still has three matches left as Arsenal manager, starting with Burnley at home on Sunday who are just one place off of the Gunners.
