Outspoken Arsenal shareholder Piers Morgan has demanded the end of Arsene Wenger’s reign as Arsenal manager on Sunday afternoon after a 2-2 draw with Manchester City.
Morgan highlighted the Gunners’s poor performance in the Premier League this season in relation to their London neighbours Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur.
His demands is coming hours after Arsenal fans launched an anti-Arsene Wenger van at the Emirates Stadium in their latest protest against the Gunners boss.
The van, which sported two different messages on either side, was parked on Drayton Park opposite the main Arsenal box office ahead of their crucial clash against Manchester City.
One side read: “Twenty years in Europe and we’re still waiting…” with the recent 10-2 aggregate scoreline against Bayern Munich, which knocked them out of the Champions League, branded underneath.
The other side fashioned a quote from Arsenal chief executive Ivan Gazidis in 2011 that read: “Arsene is accountable to the fans – they ultimately make judgement. If you are seeing the relationship between the fans and the manager break down over time that is unsustainable.”
Arsenal were looking to bring some feel-good factor back to the Emirates Stadium amid continuing uncertainty surrounding Wenger’s long-term future at the north London club.
However, Manchester City took a mere five minutes to make the breakthrough at The Emirates Stadium thanks to Leroy Sane’s close-range finish. Theo Walcott levelled the Premier League clash in the 40th minute before Argentina international Sergio Aguero restored Manchester City’s lead two minutes later. Mustafi, who moved to Arsenal from La Liga side Valencia last summer, scored a second-half equaliser to rescue a point for the home side. Arsenal remain in sixth place in the Premier League table and seven points behind fourth-placed Manchester City.
Mustafi moved to Arsenal in a £35m deal from La Liga outfit Valencia last summer as one of five new arrivals at the Emirates Stadium under Wenger.
