Former Manchester United Manager, Alex Ferguson has congratulated Arsene Wenger on the Arsenal boss’ surpassing of his record for most matches as a Premier League manager.
Wenger guided Arsenal to a 1-1 draw at West Brom on Sunday. That marked his 811th game in charge of a top flight team – one more than Ferguson achieved during his 27-year spell at Manchester United.
Ferguson while praising Wenger says he expects the record will never be broken.
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”.
The Association 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 a testimony to all he has brought to football in England and to Arsenal FC.
