Beckham defends Wenger, slams disgraceful Arsenal fans

Aakarsh / 15 March 2016

Arsene Wenger has had a difficult season so far, and even as his team are with a chance of the Premier League title, they seemed to have lost the plot and are slowly slipping into mediocrity.

These recent performances have seen the fans of the club call for the axe on the 66-year old’s head who has failed to deliver the league title for more than 10 years.

Recently, a banner reading “Arsene – thanks for the memories, but it’s time to say goodbye” was displayed during the FA Cup replay victory over Hull last week and it has fuelled a huge controversy on whether Wenger’s time at the club is up at the end of the season.

However, football legend and England international David Beckham felt that this gesture was disgraceful and took it to social media to vent his feelings.

“Disgraceful. No respect – attention seekers,” posted Beckham after the incident with the banner.

Beckham’s comment was posted from his official account, in which he has over 20million followers.

This month could just be the final nail in the coffin for Wenger as his team seem to have lost all their confidence.

Just two months ago, Arsenal were at the top of the table, level on points with Leicester City, and well place in the FA Cup along with a place in the Round of 16 of the Champions League.

But 3wins and 4 draws in the next 10 games have seen the club lose ground in the title race to the Foxes who seem determined to lift the Premier League trophy this season.

The first leg against Barcelona in the Round of 16 of the Champions League at Emirates ended in disastrous fashion as they are now required to score more than twice at the Camp Nou to have any chance of going into the next round.

With the domestic League and the Champions League slipping away, the FA Cup was the only chance for Wenger but his team slipped in this competition as well.

They were humiliated at home by Sanchez Flores’ Watford side and are now facing a season with potentially nothing to remember by.

Do you think Wenger will stay in London at the start of the next season?
