Video: Labour Leader and Arsenal Fan Jeremy Corbyn Explains Backing Arsene Wenger

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has agreed a new contract to stay at the North London club – and has been given the backing of the man who might well be the new Prime Minister next month.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn is a lifelong Arsenal supporter and is regularly seen at the Emirates on match days.

He’s been a bit busy recently with a rather important General Election campaign, but in an interview with Copa 90, the politician has been explaining exactly why he’s thrown his backing behind the Frenchman and regaled us with a couple of entertaining anecdotes:

It’s thought that news of Wenger’s new contract will be formally announced tomorrow, and depending on political allegiances, Corbyn’s comments will either go down very well or very badly with certain supporters.

Do his arguments and explanations of why he’s backing Wenger hold much water? Will it change any ‘Wenger Out’ folk?
