It is little wonder that the Arsenal team did not play with all their heart at the weekend if they were listening to the fans abusing Arsene Wenger in a personal and aggressive manner.
The Mirror described it as:
Arsene Wenger was left shell shocked by the level abuse from Arsenal fans after his team’s latest meltdown.
Angry supporters near the dug-out turned viciously against Wenger and screamed foul mouthed abuse at the Arsenal manager.
According to witnesses, it was some of the worst, loudest and most abusive that Wenger has ever suffered during his 19 years at Arsenal.
They told him to “f*** off” and urged him to go now as the mood among fans has turned nasty at the Emirates.
One witness said: “He cannot have not been aware of it. It was very close, personal and nasty. It’s some of the worst that people have ever seen.”
This abuse must be extremely hurtful to our manager after everything he has done for the club, and it may be affecting him more than we think. It was revealed that after the match Wenger told the players to take the Monday off, but maybe he thought that he himself needed time to consider the fans reaction.
Ihave no problem with letting Kroenke and Wenger know that the fans are unhappy with our season, but I don’t agree with this level of abuse, especially during a game…..
