By Dipo Olowookere The father of the seven-year-old boy, Luca Iacurti, who received a tie from Arsene Wenger last Sunday after his last home match against Burnley at the Emirates Stadium, has rejected the \u00a31,000 offered to him by an Arsenal FC fan for the piece of clothing. The 39-year-old Rocco Iacurti from Hayling Island in Hampshire, who works as a fabrication manager in England, was with his son during the coach\u2019s last game in charge of the club. The lad had carried a placard with the inscription \u2018Arsene, can I please have your tie?\u2019 and while going round the stadium to appreciate the fans, Mr Wenger sighted the request and obliged by giving the tie to the boy. Speaking with The Sun, Rocco said, \u201cI have already had offers for the tie. \u201cSomebody said in jest to me: \u2018I\u2019ll give you a grand for it.\u2019 But we aren\u2019t doing that. \u201cWe are not in it for the money. It\u2019s a wonderful piece of history, an once-in-a-lifetime gift, and we are keeping it. \u201cI am going to get the tie framed up for Luca and hang it up on his bedroom wall. \u201cWe made the sign up and hey presto it worked. The security guys were fine with us bringing it into the stadium. \u201cWenger started to walk past as Luca stood up with the sign. We thought we had missed our chance but then Wenger looked up, gave us the nod, undid his shirt buttons and handed over the tie. \u201cIt\u2019s all very surreal but also a wonderful present.\u201d The family paid special thanks to Wenger on a trip to the beach on Bank Holiday Monday, by writing \u2018Thank you, Arsene\u2019 in the sand. Rocco added: \u201cLuca probably doesn\u2019t appreciate the significance of what he has got but he was absolutely buzzing after the match. He has felt like a million pounds ever since. \u201cHe wants to wear it for school this week but he\u2019s not going to.\u201d Mr Wenger said farewell to fans in his final home game as Arsenal chief last Sunday. The 68-year-old Frenchman leaves Arsenal at the end of this season after 22 years in charge, winning three Premier League titles and seven FA Cup victories. He joined the club in 1996 and in the 2003-04 season, he famously guided Arsenal\u2019s \u2018Invincibles\u2019 to a historic unbeaten league campaign.
