Arsene Wenger given gift from Manchester United legend Sir Alex Ferguson and rousing round of applause from Old Trafford crowd ahead of Premier League clash

The Arsenal boss, 68, is preparing to leave the club in the summer after announcing he is set to walk away.

After 22 years of heated Man United vs Arsenal clashes, Wenger was treated with the utmost respect on Sunday.

Ferguson first of all waved over Jose Mourinho to show his respect, before the Scottish club legend handed Wenger a commemorative gift prior to kick-off.

Earlier in the day, the Arsenal team bus was slapped with a £60 parking fine.
