Twitter reaction from Arsenal fans and football world to Arsene Wenger's departure

Talking about his decision to leave the gunner, Arsene told Arsenal's official website, "After careful consideration and following discussions with the club, I feel it is the right time for me to step down at the end of the season".

After nearly 22 years as manager of the Gunners, Wenger will walk away from the job, despite having a year left on his contract.
