Liverpool fans tweet respect to Wenger following Arsenal exit

The rivalry between Arsenal and Liverpool has never been as fierce than with other Premier League competitors.

The Gunners’ biggest enemies are fellow North Londoners Tottenham Hotspur, while Liverpool do not see eye to eye with Everton and Manchester United.

However, the Gunners have been the butt of the joke in recent seasons due to their failings in the Premier League.

Plenty of Arsenal fans have been calling for the departure of Arsene Wenger for some time, and on Friday their wish was granted as the Frenchman officially announced in a statement that he will step down at the end of the season.

The 68-year-old leaves behind a two-decade tenure that included three Premier League title wins and seven FA Cup final triumphs.

Many rival supporters enjoyed the idea of Wenger remaining at Arsenal due to the fact that the Gunners were becoming less of a threat.

However, Liverpool supporters took a different approach as they chose to praise the Arsenal boss.
