Arsene Wenger returned to his native region of Alsace in France, to open a Stadium named after him, the ‘Stade de Arsene Wenger’.
The Arsenal boss posed for pictures at the new ground which is situated 20 kilometres south-west of Strasbourg, the city in which the Frenchman was born.
There were around 600 people in attendance, while a plaque was also dedicated to the Gunners manager.
Wenger said: “It’s an honour. I am a little surprised.”
Trying to encourage local children to chase their dreams, he added: “When I was a kid, I did not think that I would become the coach of a big club.”
The stadium will host USL Dippinheim and will possess a capacity of 500.
Club president Peter Troeesch said: “He deserves to have one in every village in Alsace and France.”
