Arsenal’s fans, both online and offline have been furious at the club’s coach since the side’s exit from the F.A Cup at the weekend. Having won it back-to-back of recent, newly-promoted Watford weren’t supposed to be the one to dump them out and prevent them from winning a possible 3rd F.A Cup in a row. They won’t surely make it to the next stage of the Champions League as Barcelona won’t have that at Nou Camp tomorrow, whilst their chances of winning the EPL get slimmer with every Leicester and Tottenham’s wins.
Despite a very trophy-less season in the books, the Arsenal board still got Wenger’s back. The North London side wants him to see out the remainder of his contract, which ends next Summer, and sacking him before then is out of the options. He is their most successful coach ever, and the top coaches aren’t available (except Mourinho?), hence a need to wait until the end.
Despite this, Wenger has revealed he could be forced to depart the Emirates dugout under one condition; fans revolt. A section of the Gunners faithful put up a banner that read “Arsene! Thanks for the memories, but it’s time to say Goodbye” during weekend’s game, and #WengerOut trends on Twitter after each loss. Such displays from the fans could have negative effects on the players and their performances. Its consistency would frustrate Wenger’s efforts at this crucial time of the campaign, and the Professor might be left with no choice rather than to take a bow after 2 decades with the club.
