With two games left of the season, it looks unlikely he will play at all due to reoccurring ankle problems. I didn't analyse anything or consider anything. So overall I will work. What will I do?

Gallas played for Arsenal for four years and was given the captain's armband by Wenger during his time at the club.

But the Germany worldwide says on Twitter, "It'll need some time but I'm sure I'll fully recover in time for the World Cup", next month in Russian Federation.

"There's a good basis".

"The positive of that (being a fan) is that I can shout at the next manager from the North Bank", joked Wenger, who addressed the fans post-match and took a farewell victory lap around the Emirates. "It needs two or three additions and this team will compete for the championship next year".

Wenger's last game in charge of Arsenal after 22 seasons is at Huddersfield on Sunday.

Before Anand joined the family business, he founded a start-up called Piramal eSwasthya, which aspires to democratize healthcare. Anand, 33, proposed to Isha , 26, at a temple in Maharashtra's Mahabaleshwar, and she agreed to marry him, reports said.

Wenger is set to depart with the club finishing in sixth, the lowest position of his reign, and with no silverware following their Europa League semi-final exit at the hands of Atletico Madrid last week. The latest injury will not see him back playing until around Christmas, making it a six-month layoff for the 32-year-old.

"It means he will be out for six months".

Ozil is Arsenal's best-paid player after signing a contract worth £350,000 per week in February, but his team-mates have begun to question the "mystery illnesses" that have seen him frequently sidelined.

The 61-year-old Italian also spoke about his burning desire to to win the Coppa Italia for a fourth consecutive season, but knows they will come up against an AC Milan team who will be hard to beat.

The Gunners, according to reports, are hoping to name Wenger's successor before the Fifa World Cup kicks off in June.

Mohamed Elneny (ankle) and Mesut Ozil (back) miss out for the visitors, along with long-term injury victim Laurent Koscielny (Achilles).
