Speaking on BT Sport after the game, Gerrard said: "They've had a tough season and this is a fantastic moment for all of them, but I bet there is no prouder man than Arsene Wenger right now".
Arsenal celebrated a record 13th FA Cup success as Aaron Ramsey once again grabbed the victor at Wembley, securing a 2-1 victory over 10-man Chelsea on Saturday and potentially going some way to restoring supporters' faith in the under-fire Arsene Wenger.
Chelsea manager Antonio Conte hopes to emulate his Italian compatriot Carlo Ancelotti by steering the club to a league and FA Cup Double in his first season at Stamford Bridge.
While the Frenchman continues to be targeted by the vociferous "Wenger Out" brigade, Arsenal's recent form means they approach the game with something of a spring in their step.
The Chile global opened the scoring at Wembley after just three minutes and forty-nine seconds, making it the club's fastest ever FA Cup final goal. I watch the game that is on the night but I don't look back what we have won, what we have done and all that, what we have lost.
"I meet so many people who love this club and share the passion for this club", he said. You have to reach this point to play in the final and it is a pity we didn't win the FA Cup.
"I think our start for sure wasn´t good, wasn´t good enough", Conte told reporters after Arsenal's 2-1 win over the English Premier League champions.
Goals from Ramsey scored '79 mins and gave Arsenal the winning goal the win a record 13th FA Cup title.
Chelsea were a shadow of their fluent play as they struggled to create chances but their star forward Diego Costa forced a great save from David Ospina and the keeper temporarily injured himself in the process.
Honestly I fancy Arsenal today, it would be typical Arsenal to win the FA Cup and somehow use it to distract from the major problems at the club.
Football fans make their way to Wembley Stadium ahead of the FA Cup final on May 27, 2017 in London, England. Kieran Gibbs remains a doubt with his thigh injury and a late decision on him may take place.
