Frustrated Arsenal fans have taken their “Wenger Out” protest campaign to greater heights on Tuesday morning by holding a protest outside the Gunners’ training ground.
Disgruntled fans gathered at the London Colney and raised a series of banners and demanded the sacking of Arsene Wenger.
One read: “Out-thought – tactical naivety, no Plan B, same end product.”
“Out-fought – constant capitulations, no leaders, no fight.”
“Out-dated – time for change at the Arsenal.”
Another read: “Stan allows Wenger to re-employ himself. Madness.”
“Fans have a voice. Boycott.”
However, the Gunners fans showed huge support for Arsenal contract rebel Alexis Sanchez. One of the fans begged the Chilean to stay while wearing a mask of the former Barcelona player and sat next to a dog, which represented Sanchez’s love for his pet pooches.

On the contrary, Wenger hit back in press conference on Tuesday, stating: “Honestly, I am professional.”
“When you are professional you perform in ideal conditions and non-ideal conditions.”
“I love to win football games. I just focus on that. I work for my club with honesty and integrity.”
“I am not scared. I accept the judgement of people and focus on the game. That’s it.”
“Everybody has an opinion today. What is important is guys who can influence the results stick together.”
“The board is responsible for the decisions which engage the future.”
“There is a sense it. What is important a good football team on the pitch playing good football.”
“The rest is just literature. What is important is playing with the right spirit, the right attitude.”
“For 20 years I have done it and it looked nothing. Now people realise it is not as easy as it looked.”
Wenger urged fans to support him and the team ahead of crucial matches in April.
He added: “We have many games in April, we need everybody on board. We need the support of our fans in games.”
“We play as well in the semi-final of the FA Cup, it’s all to go for. It’s a good opportunity to show we are united.”
“I tell myself to finish as high as possible.”
“We are fighting to have a positive end of season. That’s why you want the fans to stand behind the team.”
“Let’s finish as strong as we can. Let’s show our mental resilience.”
