Arsene Wenger‘s 22-year reign as Arsenal boss finishes on Sunday as his side take on Huddersfield away in the Premier League.

But the Frenchman would have been feeling the emotions on Saturday as he took charge of his final training session at London Colney.

Wenger was seen addressing his players during the session before giving some advice to youngsters Joe Willock, Eddie Nketiah and Reiss Nelson as he gets ready to part ways with the club that he joined back in 1996 from Nagoya Grampus Eight.

Despite the team’s dreadful away form, having not picked up a single point in 2018, the player’s appeared in very high spirits as they geared up for their game on the road. 

The returning Santi Cazorla and his compatriot Hector Bellerin were seen posing for the camera during the light-hearted session, while Alexandre Lacazette was pictured rolling on the floor in laughter.

Meanwhile, Wenger, who has won three Premier League titles and a record-breaking seven FA Cups with Arsenal, is very keen to win the final game of his reign.  

Arsenal travel to the John Smith’s Stadium knowing they will finish sixth in the Premier League, the lowest ever position under Wenger.

A 3-1 defeat at Leicester on Wednesday night means Arsenal have an identical away record to already-relegated West Brom this season, winning just three games on the road.

Wenger wants to address that woeful record against Huddersfield, who will be in a party mood having secured their top-flight status with impressive draws at Manchester City and Chelsea over the past week.

The outgoing boss believes a rare away victory will be a confidence boost to the squad he is leaving behind.

‘I will say to the players, “Look we have to prepare for the future, and the best way to do that is to win your last game and go in a positive mind into next season”,’ he said.

‘We have gone through a season of ups and downs but they have always created something special and I would like that to come out in the last game by the way we play it.

‘In fairness that’s what they did last at Leicester and I hope that for them, the best way to prepare for next season is to win the next game.’
