Arsenal Supporters Unveil Arsene Wenger Out Banner Despite Beating Hull 4-0

Arsenal Supporters Unveil Arsene Wenger Out Banner Despite Beating Hull 4-0

Poor old Arsene Wenger just can’t catch a break.

He and his Arsenal side were five matches without a win going into tonight’s fifth round FA Cup tie away at Hull City, with the club eyeing the possibility of winning the competition for the third consecutive season.

Following disastrous recent results in the Premier League against the likes of Manchester United and Swansea City, and an exit to Barcelona in the Champions League looking likely, Wenger was under serious pressure to reach the quarter-finals, with a tie against Watford lying in wait.

He and Gooners all across the land would have breathed a sigh of relief when the match transpired to be a straightforward task, with the score finishing up 4-0 courtesy of a brace for both Theo Walcott and Oliver Giroud.

But apparently it wasn’t enough for some Arsenal supporters, with a group of fans unveiling a banner in the final stages of the game which called for Arsene Wenger leave the club.

It read: “Arsene thanks for the memories but it’s time to say goodbye”.

Now, the fact that the banner was brought out at all is one thing, but for it to be revealed when the team were winning 4-0 was quite remarkable.

 

Appearing for broadcasters BT Sport as a pundit, ex-Arsenal striker Ian Wright called the incident a “shame”.

Couldn’t have said it better ourselves.
