Arsenal fans are ready to step up their attempts to push Arsene Wenger away from the Emirates this summer.
The Gunners were humiliated over two legs by German giants Bayern Munich and this has not gone well with the Emirates faithful at all.
The French manager, who has been at the club for more than 20 years now, has not been able to win the league title in more than a decade and is yet to lift the Champions League in his tenure in England.
He has won a few FA Cups for his side but that does not seem to be enough for him to stay at the club beyond this season.
The Arsenal hierarchy, however, have reportedly offered the manager a two-year contract extension which Wenger is yet to sign. But it is understood that the manager wants to assess the condition of the club at the end of the season before putting pen to paper.
The deal remains on the table for Wenger to sign so every average performance from the Gunners is now under scrutiny by the frustrated fans at the club.
And it now looks like they want to leave no stone unturned as they are now planning to fly an embarrassing ‘Wenger Out’ banner at the Emirates this weekend.
Arsenal play Manchester City in the next home game and it is now understood that the Gunners faithful have raised over £2,000 for the costs of the plane.
Not many will forget the ‘Moyes Out’ banner that flew over the Old Trafford not so long ago and the Arsenal fans want to do something similar, hoping for a similar effect.
A group of supporters have set up a JustGiving page with the intention of raising £3,000 to fly the banner over the Emirates during an Arsenal game.
The statement on the page read:
“We are raising funds to help with demonstrations, advertisements, and banners to encourage the owners of Arsenal, to remove Arsene Wenger from the position of manager.
“He has constantly delivered unsatisfactory results, and lifelong Gooners are fed up.”
At the time of publishing, £2,612 was already collected, with the target now being £4,000 before the Manchester City game after the international break.
The Gunners are currently in the 5th place in the points table, 5 points off Liverpool in 4th but they have two games in hand which could make the difference.
They have also qualified for the FA Cup semi-final where they will play Manchester City next month. But do you think this is enough to keep Wenger at the Emirates next season?
