Everybody is Trolling Arsene Wenger After His Latest Comments on Kylian Mbappé

Arsene Wenger is being mercilessly trolled by fans all over the country after his latest comments on Monaco’s young starlet Kylian Mbappé.

The 18-year-old striker is one of the continent’s hottest properties after scoring 22 goals in his debut season at the Monte Carlo club so far.

Anybody even mildly familiar with Arsene Wenger’s business in the transfer market over the years will know that the Frenchman has claimed to have been close to signing some of football’s biggest stars at one point or another.

The likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Cristiano Ronaldo and even Leo Messi were all allegedly being watched by the Frenchman before they became superstars, and now we can apparently add Mbappé to that list.

And according to Wenger, he even went to Mbappé’s house to try and force through the move.

He was quoted in the Metro as saying: “The player would tell you that I was at his home last year to try to get him here.

“Because he was at the end of [his] contract but Monaco managed to keep him and the decision was very, very tight.”

As you can imagine, the comments have generated a certain type of response on social media:
