Wenger is stepping down at the end of the season and the defeat against United was his last game in charge of Arsenal at Old Trafford. The win secured a top-four finish and Champions League football next season for the Red Devils. Mavropanos, who nobody knew before, has done well. "Manchester United, as a club, should always play in the Champions League, so we are very happy for that and, right now, we are focusing on keeping second place and that's what we work for every week now".

Although Arsenal have stagnated in the latter period of Wenger's near 22-year spell at the club, Ferguson accepts he had to learn some lessons from the 68-year-old, who won three Premier Leagues between 1997-98 and 2003-04.

Meanwhile, Wenger is now preparing his Arsenal side for their trip to Atletico Madrid in the return leg of their crunch Europa League semi-final tie on Thursday night.
