There was something to celebrate at the climax to an otherwise miserably lackluster final season in charge, with Arsenal finishing sixth in the Premier League - the lowest under Wenger.
"Not really, I'm sad", he said. I wish everyone well, the fans have been great until the end and I wish the club well for the future.
A flowing move involving Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Alexandre Lacazette and Aaron Ramsey led to Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang sliding home at the far post in the 38th minute to make it 1-0.
However, the Frenchman is confident the club are in a strong position to challenge for honours under his successor.
"We won three Premier League titles, played 49 games unbeaten and I'm very proud to have won seven FA Cups, too". Instead, the message in the skies read "Merci Arsene, we will miss you too" in response to Wenger's goodbye speech last week at the Emirates Stadium.
And yet, no one else has managed anything quite like what Wenger's team did that year - and on the day of his final game in charge of the Gunners, Barca truly paid the ultimate tribute.
Yet the fine form of Aubameyang since his January arrival encouraged Wenger to claim he has left Arsenal in good hands.
"It will be hard to adjust but I will have to deal with that".
This win over Huddersfield was the first time in eight attempts Arsenal have picked up any points away from home in the Premier League in 2018 - making them the last professional team in England to do so.
"I will stay in football for sure. I am addicted and I don't think that can be cured". I just want to wish this group of players well and the staff who are coming in.
Arsenal Fan TV star Claude Callegari has announced via the YouTube channel that he will be leaving the show after this season.
