Ian Wright Has Twitter Spat With Arsenal Fan Who Held Up Wenger Out Banner

Ian Wright has called out an Arsenal fan who was partly responsible for holding up a banner calling for Arsene Wenger to leave the club tonight.

The Gunners were playing Championship side Hull City in a fifth round FA Cup replay at the KC Stadium, and progressed to the quarter-finals courtesy of a 4-0 win, thanks to a brace each from Theo Walcott and Oliver Giroud.

But despite the comfortable victory, a gang of the team’s¬†supporters were seen holding a large banner that appeared to ask for their manager to step down from his position – and only revealed it when the score was 4-0.

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 coasting to victory was quite remarkable, and club legend Wright was quick to take issue with it.

Speaking in his role as a pundit for broadcasters BT Sport after the match, he called the incident “really disappointing”, and was confronted on Twitter.

To his credit, he didn’t back down, and had some harsh words for the punter:
