An array of stars from the world of football and entertainment attended a glittering event in London on Monday, when the ex-Gunners boss received his 2019 Legends of Football award.

Wenger, now 69, was the guest of honour in recognition of his illustrious football career and work with the Nordoff Robbins charity, which uses music to enrich the lives of people with disability. 

Remarkably, guests at the event collectively raised £521,000 for the cause. 

Sir Alex was unable to attend on the evening, but the beloved former United manager took time out of his schedule to record a special video message for his old competitor. 

“Hi Arsene,”

“First of all I am sorry that I am there tonight. I would have loved to have been there, for you to be honoured by Nordoff Robins. It is a fantastic charity and I am really proud of you for taking part in it. But, most of all, for the career that you had as a manager at Arsenal. 

“It was absolutely fantastic, you are an absolute legend and that is why it is called Legends Tonight. Once again, I loved the competition against you, we had some great times and it is wonderful that you are getting this award. Good luck and my blessing is with you.”
