Arsene Wenger had some heartfelt words for Manchester United and Sir Alex Ferguson in the aftermath of Arsenals 2-1 defeat.

The Frenchman managed Arsenal for the last time at Old Trafford on Sunday and the afternoon ended in disappointment for the north London club as Marouane Fellaini popped up with a last-gasp winner.

United paid tribute to Wenger ahead of kick-off and Ferguson presented his former rival with a commemorative vase on the pitch.

Wenger thanked United supporters for the kind reception he received and had a message for Ferguson following the match.
