Arsenal fans project WENGER OUT onto Emirates AND old Highbury ground

Fan backlash against Gunners gaffer continues to grow in strength despite FA Cup semi-final victory

Have the Wenger Out brigade gone too far now?

Angry Arsenal fans have projected a Wenger Out message onto the Emirates Stadium, and their old ground Highbury.

The experienced gaffer has faced a barrage of fan fury this season that shows no sign of dampening despite the club’s recent FA Cup semi-final victory.

Protesting supporters made their feelings known by projecting their campaign’s signature message on the walls of the venues most significant to the club.

A Twitter account with the name @NoNewContract even showed a ‘#WengerOut’ sign displayed on Marble Arch.

This latest protest against the French boss of more than 20 years comes as Invincibles star Robert Pires calls for Wenger to get the job for another three years.

Pires also believes Arsenal can win the Premier League next season.

First and foremost in Wenger’s plans, though, will be securing a top-four spot.

A huge obstacle in the way to achieving that comes in the form of local rivals Spurs, who host the Gunners at White Hart Lane on Sunday.

Arsenal currently sit sixth in the table, some five points behind fourth-placed Man City.
