Six members of Arsene Wenger's backroom staff are reportedly facing the axe including long-serving physio Colin Lewin. "People are so nice since I said that".
Whether Wenger will return to management elsewhere or settle for a director of football role with one of Europe's superpowers remains to be seen.
The game was Wenger's last after he announced he would leave the club at the end of his 22nd season in charge.
Both Arsenal and Chelsea are on the lookout for new managers, but a top target has revealed that he hasn't received any offers from anywhere yet. "I wish everybody well and thank everybody".
Wenger took charge of his final game as Arsenal boss at Huddersfield on Sunday, as he walked away from the club after nearly 22 years at the helm and the efforts to replace him are now gathering pace.
"If they don't fire me, then I think I'm staying at Juventus next year too", said Allegri.
In the 22nd minute, the entire ground stood to applaud Wenger, whose achievements - including three Premier League titles, seven FA Cups and a 49 game unbeaten run - were celebrated in song by the travelling North London supporters.
The 36-year-old spent five seasons with Arsenal as a player before hanging up his boots in 2016. While I find it a little disrespectful to Arsene Wenger, the banner's right: Stan Kroenke must be next. "Maybe it's better I go somewhere else".
Wenger added that Arsenal also tried to sign Lionel Messi and Gerard Pique from Barcelona but failed to add them to their successful poaching of Cesc Fabregas in 2003.
"I think those players need a bit of a kick up the backside and I think he might be the man to do it".
