Arsenal legend Wilson ‘really hurt’ by protests over Wenger’s future

Date Posted,April 1, 2017

Arsenal legend Bob Wilson admits he has been hurt by protests against Arsene Wenger.

Gunners fans have turned on the Frenchman after a dismal run of results saw them slip down to sixth in the Premier League table.

Wenger is yet to decide if he will stay on next season with more protests planned ahead of the clash with Manchester City.

Wilson has urged Wenger to clarify his future but wants the club to stick together during the tough period.

“I think he wants to be there. What I don’t want is Arsene Wenger to leave Arsenal FC under a cloud,” Wilson told BBC Radio 5 live.

“I know he’ll always be welcomed back after he retires but I’m really hurting to see Arsenal fans arguing amongst themselves right now.

“I feel Arsene should declare it. I just think it would be very good for the club all the way round if we just had a little bit more clarity.”

Wilson also believes Wenger has been unfairly criticised for his side’s recent slump.
