Arsenal chairman ‘walked out of Selhurst Park after Palace scored their second goal’

Date Posted,April 13, 2017

Arsenal chairman Sir Chips Keswick reportedly walked out of Selhurst Park as Crystal Palace went 2-0 up on Monday night.

The Gunners went on to lose 3-0 to relegation-threatened Palace, delivering a crushing blow to the club’s hopes of finishing in the top four this season.

Fans chanted for Wenger’s resignation, while also aiming digs at players, singing: “You’re not fit to wear the shirt!”

It all seemed too much for Keswick, who, according to the Daily Mail , stunned the neutrals sat by him by getting up and walking out as Yohan Cabaye made the score 2-0 in the 63rd minute.

Leaving football matches early when you are in a position of seniority is generally considered the wrong thing to do.

One Football League chairman allegedly said: “It was astonishing to see him just up and leave. It’s just not done. Arsenal, known for their high standards, should be very embarrassed at such a lack of basic courtesy.”

Keswick’s departure is a bitter blow for manager Arsene Wenger, who is looking for support in the run in until the end of the campaign.
