Arsene Wenger booed by Arsenal fans

Gunners boss harrangued by supporters at Stoke-on-Trent train station after 3-2 loss

 

The level of opprobrium directed by Arsenal fans at the manager, Arsène Wenger, appears to be escalating rapidly. A video has emerged on YouTube of Wenger being loudly jeered by fans as he boarded a train at Stoke-on-Trent following his side’s 3-2 defeat by Stoke City on Saturday.

The fans can be heard voicing their growing disenchantment with the direction in which the 65-year-old is taking the club. “Joely, do the best thing mate,” one fan called to the striker Joel Campbell. “Get out while you can, Joel.” Wenger, who criticised his side’s defence in his post-match comments, then walks past, tight-lipped, to a chorus of boos.

Second Captains

Arsenal had been on a run of three wins in a row before the defeat at Stoke but the result has reignited calls from some supporters for Wenger to resign or be sacked. Prior to beating Borussia Dortmund 2-0 in the Champions League on 26 November, they were without a win in three and this had led many fans to express their frustration with Wenger’s management.
