Arsenal celebrity fan Piers Morgan isn't exactly one to keep his feelings to himself. Time and time again in recent years, Morgan has openly criticised Gunners boss Arsene Wenger for failing to win trophies. 

With the north London outfit once again having failed to deliver the Premier League title - they haven't won the competition since 2004 - Morgan, alongside a number of other disgruntled Arsenal fans have raised questions over the future of Wenger. 

The experienced Frenchman may well have enjoyed a great deal of success in the opening decade of his Arsenal career, but things haven't exactly taken off recently.

And now Morgan has criticised the Arsenal chief again, insisting that he gives up after Wenger told midfielder Mohamed Elneny to stop shooting. 

Morgan tweeted: "Wenger told Elneny to stop shooting? I give up. #afc"

But what did Wenger really tell Elneny? Well, unsurprisingly, Morgan slightly overexaggerated things. 

The Gunners chief certainly didn't tell the dynamic midfielder to completely forget about shooting. He did, however, tell him to be more 'intelligent' when he takes a shot. 

Speaking to Arsenal Magazine, as per ESPN, the Egyptian star stated: "I used to shoot a lot when I was at Basel but sometimes that doesn't suit our style here. 

"Wenger] taught me to be more of a team player and to be intelligent in terms of when I shoot. I also paid attention to my teammates and took their advice. That has helped me to improve my performances already.

"The most important thing for me has been listening to Arsene Wenger's advice and putting it into action. 

"The manager has been giving me advice since the first day I arrived at the training ground. He always talks to me about the game and my position and that gave me a lot of confidence. He often instructs me to press the opponent and not give them time on the ball in our half. He's also helped me to understand the system and playing style he prefers to see us playing."

Trophy pursuit 

The midfield ace has played a prominent role at the Emirates recently, but he has failed to help his side deliver the required title challenge. 

The ex-Basel man has insisted, however, that he's at Arsenal to win trophies and will work hard to deliver the title next season. 

He continued by saying: "If it's not meant to be this season, we need to work hard and fight to win the title next year," he said. "Personally I am here to help Arsenal win trophies. We want to make the fans happy and bring back the golden times."

Arsenal fans: was Wenger right to tell Elneny to stop shooting as often?
