Go,Wenger go, Arsenal fans cry out



Arsenal supporters staged protests calling for Arsene Wenger to leave the club prior to their thrashing by Bayern Munich on Tuesday night, even accusing the manager of ‘killing’ their club.

Wenger has faced increasing dissent from the stands in recent months after Arsenal slipped out of the Premier League title race and suffered a humiliating 5-1 defeat by Bayern Munich in the first leg of their Champions League last-16 tie.

The Frenchman, who has been in charge since October 1996, said on Monday that he would not be forced out of a club he ‘built up’.

But, ahead of the return leg against Bayern at the Emirates, certain sections of supporters made their discontent with their manager clear. Around 200 fans gathered outside the ground chanting ‘Arsene Wenger we want you to go’ and ‘Arsene Wenger, you’re killing our club’.

Supporters also held up banners calling on the club’s hierarchy to resist the urge to renew the manager’s contract, which expires at the end of the season.

One fan labelled Wenger ‘stubborn, stale, clueless’, while many others boycotted the game altogether by putting their tickets up for sale.

The Arsenal manager is understood to want to extend his stay in north London. But these protests come after Gilberto Silva, a member of Wenger’s Invicibles side of 2003-04, said he felt ‘the time had come’ for the Arsenal boss to leave.
