Some Arsenal Fans Want Arsene Wenger To Return As Manager

Some Arsenal Fans Want Arsene Wenger To Return As Manager

Arsenal's seven year wait for a league title ended on Sunday afternoon when their women's team beat Brighton 4-0 in the WSL.

It was a historic day for Joe Montemurro's ladies team, who won their first title since 2012, but we can't say the same for the men's side, who were comprehensively beaten by an in-form Leicester City.

The 3-0 defeat not only dampened their hopes of a top four finish, but many fans are fed up with their lacklustre performances of late.

So much so that some Arsenal fans called for the return of Arsene Wenger, taking to social media after the loss.

The 69-year-old left the club last season after 22 years in charge.

"After careful consideration and following discussions with the club, I feel it is the right time for me to step down at the end of the season." Wenger said in a statement on Arsenal's official website.

"I am grateful for having had the privilege to serve the club for so many memorable years. I managed the club with full commitment and integrity."

Just hours after he announced that he would leave the club, many fans called for the club to rename the Emirates Stadium as tribute to the longest serving manager in their 132 year history.

Former Arsenal players Paul Merson and Alan Smith also backed the idea of 'The Arsene Wenger' stadium being introduced in the future.

"They should drop the Emirates bit - they don't need the money - and name it the Arsene Wenger Stadium," Merson told Sky Sports News.

"That's his stadium. He built that. He made that stadium. Even if they called it the Emirates Arsene Wenger Stadium. He deserves to be on that."

But would Arsenal fans really welcome him back to the club?
