Wenger Out brigade not giving in as banner appears at The Oval

Date Posted,May 31, 2017

Arsene Wenger is staying.

After a season of speculation it was confirmed on Wednesday that the Arsenal manager will be at the Emirates for two more years.

But there are still Gooners not willing to concede defeat.

Not even when there isn’t even a football game to voice their discontent at.

Take this Arsenal fan at Thursday’s ICC Champions trophy opener at The Oval for instance.

With England on their way to victory over Bangladesh, ‘Wenger Out’ as flashed by a fan – talk about shutting the gate after the horse has bolted.

Wenger called for unity among the club’s fans after his “love affair” was given an extension.

He finally signed his £8million-a-year contract until 2019, on the back of the most turbulent season of his 21-year reign.

The confirmation followed a Tuesday board meeting and review of the club’s performances on and off the pitch this season.

The season ended on a high with victory in the FA Cup over Chelsea at Wembley.

“The message to the fans is what is the basic DNA of the club: Let’s be together to support our players, to support the club and all give our absolute best to be at the level that we want to be,” he said.

“We can move up to the next level, I’m convinced of that, by having faith in the way we want to play football and by supporting the players we have already.

“Of course we’ll try to strengthen our squad to be stronger next season, but we want to be faithful to the way we want to play the game. We want to support this way [of playing] all together.

“It’s difficult because you want to respond to the demands of all the people who love this club. This is of course a job that demands 100 per cent commitment and you want to be at that level to make sure you can make everyone happy.”
