Arsene Wenger used his farewell speech at his last-ever Arsenal home game to wish Sir Alex Ferguson a speedy recovery following his brain haemorrhage. The former Manchester United boss, who enjoyed a long and famous rivalry with Wenger, underwent emergency surgery on Saturday with the club confirming that the procedure ‘had gone very well’. Sir Alex had welcomed Wenger to Old Trafford for the final time just last weekend, and the Frenchman was keen to pay his respects as he addressed the Emirates crowd.

He began: ‘Firstly, because at Arsenal we care, we would like to wish Sir Alex Ferguson to get well very quickly.’ He later added to Sky Sports: ‘I am concerned because last week we were together. ‘I offer just a message of support. I trust his strength and optimistic character to get over it quickly and to get over it very well.’
