Arsene Wenger should have the Emirates Stadium renamed in his honour. 

Paul Merson and Alan Smith believe the most fitting tribute to Wenger would be to name their stadium in his honour as he leaves the club.

Both believe "They should drop the Emirates bit - they don't need the money - and name it the Arsene Wenger Stadium," Merson, who played for Wenger, told Sky Sports News.

"That's his stadium. He built that. He made that stadium. Even if they called it the Emirates Arsene Wenger Stadium. He deserves to be on that."

Smith added: "I go along with what Merse said. I think it's a great shout - to name the stadium after him would be a fitting tribute.

"Obviously, clubs these days are unwilling to forego all of the millions that come with naming rights, but I think that would be fantastic."

Yet prior to the naming rights it was known as Ashburton Grove. Arsenal should change this name and keep the sponsors name. This will keep everyone happy. However if not the stadium a Stand at least in his honour.
