Arsenal fans heard singing disgraceful chant during ‘Wenger Out’ protests

Arsenal fans carried out their ‘Wenger Out’ protest before Saturday afternoon’s Premier League clash against Norwich City at the Emirates Stadium.

The disgruntled supporters help up pieces of paper with ‘Time For Change’ written on them, while the ‘Arsene: Thanks for the memories but it’s time to say goodbye’ banner also made an appearance.

The majority of Arsenal fans could be heard chanting: "Au revoir, Arsene Wenger, we'll be happy when you leave in May”. However, in one video at least one of the fans can be heard deliberately changing the word ‘leave’ with ‘die’. (Scroll down this page to watch the video).

Given how much Wenger has done for Arsenal Football Club since arriving in north London back in 1996, to hear one or two of the fans chanting such an appalling song comes as a genuine surprise.

Regardless of a couple of mindless idiots, though, it’s now clear that the majority of Arsenal supporters want Wenger to leave this summer.

Wenger pins some of the blame on fans

It’s possible that comments made by Wenger about the Arsenal supporters during his press conference on Friday may have antagonised them further.

"When a club cannot enjoy anything anymore, it's in trouble,” the French coach was quoted as saying by the Independent.

"We have to stick together. We lost the championship at home against the lower teams, but we played at home in a very difficult climate. We have to realise that, away from home, we are championship winners. At home, against the smaller teams, we lost the league."

But for all he has done for the Gunners, he surely deserves more respect from the fans.
