Arsene Wenger has faced the wrath of Gunners fans after Arsenal crashed out of the Champions League in humiliating fashion and a disappointing run of games in the Premier League which has now left them battling for a place in the top-four.
Frustrated fans have organised WENGER OUT protest campaigns all over the globe and in the weirdest of places to grab more eyeballs but now it seems that at least some in Manchester are backing the Frenchman to stay at Arsenal.
During the opening minutes of Thursday’s high-octane derby clash between Manchester City and Manchester United, a plane flew over the Etihad stadium, waving a banner that read – “WengerIn.com”
Wenger’s current contract with Arsenal is set to expire at the end of the season and now there are doubts over his future. Fans are divided, some want the Frenchman to stay and some want him out.
It is believed that the Gunners hierarchy are keen on holding on to Wenger by offering him a new two-year contract extension at the Emirates, but the board said that they will respect any decision taken by the Frenchman.
Shortly after waving the WENGER IN banner, the people behind the quirky stunt made themselves known. They were the organisers of Manchester’s Parklife festival.
