'I've never really known life without Arsene Wenger': Twitter reacts to Arsenal manager's decision to step down

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says he will leave the English club at the end of the season after more than 21 years in charge.

The 68-year-old Frenchman has won the Premier League title three times and the FA Cup seven times with Arsenal since taking over in October 1996, but has faced growing disillusionment from fans in recent years.

In a statement released by Arsenal on Friday, Wenger says he made his decision to step down "after careful consideration and following discussions with the club."

Arsenal owner Stan Kroenke said it is "one of the most difficult days we have ever had in all our years in sport."

Wenger had one more year left on his contract. Arsenal said it will make an appointment as soon as possible.

The announcement sent social media into a frenzy. Here is how Twitter reacted to the news.
