Manchester United legend Sir Alex Ferguson has hailed Arsene Wenger on breaking his record for most Premier League matches managed.
The longtime Arsenal boss took his league tally as manager to 811 games after the Gunners’ 1-1 draw away to West Brom, which is one more than Ferguson managed during his 27-year spell at Old Trafford.
The Scot was in full praise of Wenger on eclipsing his record and stated that he doesn’t think nobody else will ever be able to beat this new milestone.
In a statement released through the League Managers Association, Ferguson said: “I applaud Arsene on surpassing my record of managing 810 Premier League games.
“It is a fantastic milestone which has required the highest standards of dedication and professional management to achieve.
“I doubt his record, whatever it turns out to be, will ever be beaten. Congratulations on a truly remarkable career and great service to football and Arsenal FC.”
LMA chairman Howard Wilkinson added: “On behalf of the League Managers Association and all our members, I would like to congratulate Arsene on his record-breaking achievement. “811 Premier League games, and more to come, is testimony to all he has brought to football in England and to Arsenal FC.
“There are few certainties in football, but I’m sure his record will last forever.”
The Frenchman, who has been at his role at Arsenal since 1996, is the most decorated manager in the club’s history, winning three Premier League titles and seven FA Cup trophies.
