LONDON- Arsenal fans have been given the chance to pay tribute to Arsene Wenger at Emirates Stadium ahead of Sunday’s match against Burnley.

The club decorated the Emirates and the surrounding stadium complex with banners and murals to mark the Frenchman’s final home game in charge of the Gunners after 22 years.

Queues outside the club’s The Armory Store grew ahead of kick-off as fans stood in line to sign a book with farewell messages for the 68-year-old. Shirts inside the club store also displayed messages from the current squad.

A message from midfielder Granit Xhaka read: “A dream comes true to play for you.”

Jack Wilshere left a message saying: “Like a father through tough times in my career.”

Fans from all over the world have also prepared their own banners and flags to unfurl inside the ground ahead of the game.

Wenger has two games remaining after Sunday’s farewell at the Emirates, with away games in the Premier League against Leicester City and Huddersfield still to play.
