Gunners boss pays tribute to Old Trafford rival
Arsene Wenger has paid tribute to Sir Alex Ferguson's 25-year tenure at Manchester United and believes his achievements will never be surpassed.
United's legendary manager will celebrate a quarter of a century in the Old Trafford hot-seat on Sunday.
A large portion of that reign has been spent in direct competition with Wenger and his Arsenal side.
The pair have not always seen eye to eye, with meetings between United and the Gunners often marred by fiery outbursts both on and off the field.
Wenger and Ferguson have mellowed as the years have gone by, though, and now enjoy a much more amiable relationship.
There is a great deal of respect between the two and Wenger has been quick to hail the job Ferguson has undertaken during a glittering era of dominance at Old Trafford.
He said: "What can you say? People are talking about it a lot at the moment.
"All you can say is that it is remarkable through the quality and the consistency.
"It is exceptional as well because I don't know anybody at the top level who has done 25 years at the top level with the same club.
"Certainly never anybody will do it again."
Asked whether there was any chance of him achieving a similar feat at Arsenal, Wenger added: "The distance is a bit far, that would be 10 more years.
"I am already happy if I make this year a good season after all of this!"
