Outgoing Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger was warmly greeted by the Manchester United fans and presented with a gift by former United boss Alex Ferguson on his final visit to Old Trafford as Gunners' boss on Sunday (April 29).

"I think it is good for the team", the midfielder said after the late 2-1 win against Arsenal. When I won the Champions League I say the Champions League is most important for me.

Fellaini rose highest to flick home the victor after Henrikh Mkhitaryan's second-half strike against his former club had cancelled out Paul Pogba's early opener.

But United made the breakthrough when an Alexis Sanchez header was heroically deflected onto the post by Hector Bellerin, only for Pogba to stab it into the net. "I will be surprised if I meet him next year", he said.

A few weeks ago even Chelsea's own players seemed to have given up hope of Champions League football at Stamford Bridge next season. "It is very classy from them", Wenger offered after the game, jokingly adding, "When you're not a danger any more, people love you".

Mourinho, arms outstretched, turned around to face the Manchester United fans and media and held his pose for several seconds in celebration after Marouane Fellaini's stoppage-time victor. "We know their level but here you discover what they do in the competition". "I have come here for a long, long time and next year somebody else will be on the bench and will get a very hostile reception as well, don't worry!"

The scene carried into the arena as the game neared, and built into a crescendo just before the first puck drop. They also recommend not buying tickets on the street, because they are not refundable and cannot be guaranteed.

"Niles is slowly getting to the player I think he can be in the defensive midfield, and he can create as well", Wenger said.

Mourinho also warmly embraced the man he once called a "voyeur" and a "specialist in failure", although the Portuguese avoided joining Ferguson and Wenger in a touchline photo opportunity.

"I want him to stay, the club wants him to stay, I think he will stay, it is almost there", he said.

Especially so with his young team - featuring two 20-year-olds and an 18-year-old - doing their best with many senior players rested ahead of the second leg of the Europa League semi-final against Atletico Madrid on Thursday.

"I want to have a glass of wine now with Sir Alex, because he has always good wine".
