‘Stubborn, stale, clueless’ – Arsenal fans stage Wenger protest

‘Stubborn, stale, clueless' - Arsenal fans stage Wenger protest

Arsenal supporters have staged a protest ahead of a Champions League clash with Bayern Munich calling for the end to Arsene Wenger’s tenure at the club.

The Frenchman inherited the Gunners reins in 1996 and is the most successful manager in the club’s history.

He has overseen Premier League title triumphs and domestic cup successes, but a disgruntled fan base have grown disillusioned with events in recent years.

Calls of “we want our Arsenal back” could be heard on Tuesday evening as those eager to see change embraced in north London took to the streets.

Wenger was also accused of “killing our club”, while signs and banners sported slogans such as “no new contract” and “stubborn, stale, clueless” were paraded.

Fans aired their displeasure before heading to Emirates Stadium for a meeting with Bayern that many consider to be encapsulating their demise.

Arsenal head into the last 16 encounter 5-1 down from the first leg in Germany, with another frustrating exit from Europe now on the cards.

The Gunners have also slipped to fifth in the Premier League table, adding further weight to those urging the board not to hand Wenger an extension to a contract due to expire in the summer.
