Sir Alex Ferguson Pays Tribute To Arsene Wenger In Brilliant Video Message

Sir Alex Ferguson Pays Tribute To Arsene Wenger In Brilliant Video Message

Arsene Wenger was inducted into the Legends of Football Hall of Fame on Monday night as a handful of stars paid tribute to the former Arsenal manager.

The 69-year-old, who spent 22 years with the North London club, was praised by the likes of Thierry Henry and Cesc Fabregas throughout the evening.

But a video message from former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson stole the show.

Ferguson and Wenger enjoyed a fierce rivalry in the late 90's and throughout the 00's but despite their, at times, argumentative relationship, the former Manchester United boss praised the Frenchman.

"The career you had as a manager at Arsenal was absolutely fantastic, an absolute legend." beamed Ferguson.

"You loved the competition. We had some great times and it's wonderful you're getting this award. So good luck, my blessing with you."

As mentioned earlier, Thierry Henry also praised his former manager, who lifted 17 trophies during his time with Arsenal.

"Boss, congratulations. Another honour, well deserved. The game misses you, the Premier League misses you. But that's well deserved for you - for what you have done for the game.

"An amazing achievement, hopefully we can see you around again one more time on the bench.

"For me that would be enough. What you have done for me, what you have done for Arsenal Football Club and the Premier League is second to none.

"Love you as always and enjoy the night."

Wenger has been linked with a move back to management, but he revealed on Monday night that his previous links to Arsenal have stopped him from accepting a job in the Premier League.

"No, I'm an Arsenal man. After that I'm as well a professional you know, I cannot stop to work because of that," he told Sky Sports.

"I decided to move out of the Premier League because I'm too linked with Arsenal and emotionally too much linked with Arsenal.

"I had opportunities to work in England that I turned down until now because I didn't want to do it."
