Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says the club have every reason to feel proud following their final day heroics against West Bromwich Albion
The Gunners came back from 2-1 down to earn a 3-2 victory at the Hawthorns on Sunday, ultimately guaranteeing the north London giants automatic qualification for next season’s Champions League.
The feat was made even more memorable by the fact the club had bounced back from one of their worst-ever starts to a campaign to earn a berth in Europe’s premier club cup competition for the 15th successive season.
“I think if you look at the season as a whole, we lost only two of the last 16 games and created a fantastic run,” Wenger told the club’s official website.
“In the end we finished with 70 points, which is respectable, and we qualify for the Champions League for the 15th consecutive year.
“Of course we are very proud of that, especially this season having started where we started. We had problems getting over the line and you could see that again today.”
