Arsenal fans were so loud Mikel Arteta couldn't start his end of season speech

Arsenal fans gave Mikel Arteta such an amazing reception after Arsenal's final game that he couldn't give his end of season speech to them.
It has been a season of many mighty ups and one crushing down for the Gunners, who weren't even expected to finish in the top four at the start of the season.
They led the Premier League table for most of the campaign but in the end were denied their first title since 2004 by Manchester City.
Still there was plenty to be proud of for Arteta and his side who at least gave fans something to hope for and brought Champions League football back to the Emirates.
Following the last game of the campaign the manager attempted to thank the players and fans but supporters inside the Emirates were so loud he couldn't get a word in edgeways, as you can see in the video below.
"We know what is in our destination, is to bring success, joy, and trophies to this club, but in the meantime please enjoy the journey," the former City assistant boss said when he eventually did get to talk.
"Enjoy the company. I cannot be more grateful, or be more proud to have this journey with all of you, with the players and the staff, everybody at the club.
"Thank you so much for your trust, your patience and thank you for your unconditional love that you are showing towards the team, the staff, the club and everyone that supports this football club.
"Thank you so much!"
Fans were impressed with the scenes at the Emirates, with one saying: "Never seen stadium so full for lap of appreciation."
"Man gave us renewed hope," added a second.
A third heaped more praise on the manager, claiming, "He brought the club back from ruin. The connection with the fans and the players is all down to him. I couldn't be happier that he is managing the club."
"He is truly the man for us. My manager!", exclaimed a fourth.
And full of optimism another supporter predicted, "Imagine when we win the league next season it will be bedlam."
The north Londoners finished the season by absolutely battering Wolverhampton Wanderers 5-0, with the departing Granit Xhaka grabbing two goals.
With City losing to Brentford on the final day, following their draw to Brighton last week, it means that Arteta's side finished just five points off the champions.
Already his side are being predicted to finish second behind Pep Guardiola's side next season, with City aiming for a fourth title in-a-row.
They would have to make English football history in order to complete that achievement, with no side having been champions more than three in-a-row previously.
