Wenger could walk into the Emirates Stadium pitch under a guard of honor that would be formed by both Arsenal and Burnley players as the Frenchman would be leading the Gunners for the last time in the Premier League on Sunday in his last home game.

Wenger, who was hoping to cap his Arsenal managerial career with a European Cup final, was denied by Atletico Madrid as they suffered a 1-0 loss courtesy of a first-half stoppage time strike by former Chelsea player, Diego Costa as the game ended 2-1 on aggregate.

A report says that the plan for a guard of honor for the Frenchman would be possible should the visiting team agree to pay tribute to Wenger just like West Ham did for EPL champion, Manchester City last weekend.

The club has planned much celebration to mark Wenger’s last home game such as; a procession of former players who have played 100 matches or more for the club and also deliberating on naming a stand after Wenger though they have not reached a decision on that.

Arsenal captain, Per Mertesacker who will also be retiring at the end of the season to take charge of the Arsenal Academy, would receive a presentation alongside long serving kit-man, Vic Akers after the match.

The club also announced that their fans will be provided with special red and white T-shirts with ‘Merci Arsene’ imprinted on them to commemorate Wenger’s final home game in charge.
