By on April 27, 2013

Arsene Wenger has revealed that his team will hold a guard of honor for Manchester United‘s players before Sunday’s match at Emirates Stadium. According to Wenger, the manager of Arsenal the reason behind was that he wants the traditions of English football to be respected.

The match sees the return of former Arsenal striker Robin van Persie, who scored a hat-trick against Villa. Although Wenger said he wanted Van Persie “to be respected”, while Ferguson said he expected some booing of the striker. For Arsenal to have one of their players go to their biggest rivals of the last 20 years doesn’t sit well with their fans, nor Arsene for that matter. But it does happen. You just have to move on. – He said.

In the last 11 games between Arsenal and Manchester United, Manchester United has wone 9 matches and lost only one in all competitions.

United boss Sir Alex Ferguson added: “I am glad Arsene has done that. That is what great clubs should do.”

In 1991, Manchester United gave Arsenal a guard of honor at Highbury.
