It seems even Rio Ferdinand is #WengerOut these days.
The former Manchester United and England defender has had his say on Arsene Wenger’s situation at Arsenal at the moment, and it’s a pretty damning retort.
Taking to Twitter on Sunday, Ferdinand weighed into the Wenger debate by saying: “No disrespect but Wenger going on for too long feels like my last year playing at QPR.”
The once brilliant defender spent 12-years at United, winning countless honours and was often heralded as one of the finest centre-backs of his generation.
But as he struggled for game time, form and fitness, he made an ill-fated move to QPR in 2014 but only made a handful of appearances as the side were relegated at the end of the season.
We knew it was over. He knew it was over. But for some reason, he carried on.
And much like his decision to move to Loftus Road, Wenger’s decision to continue his legacy at Arsenal is seemingly muddying his once good name.
The Frenchman has come under increasing pressure over the last couple of seasons, as the Gunners place among the elite in the Premier League is slowly waning. Things have been especially bad recently, following back-to-back 3-0 defeats to Man City.
His position at the club is set to be reviewed over the summer and it certainly looks like his 22-year reign could be genuinely over. There have been many calls for him to call it a day, and we’re not just talking about those guys over at ArsenalFanTV.
- Rio Ferdinand & Martin Keown talking about THAT fight in 2003 is as tense as expected
- Victor Lindelof is growing in confidence at Man United and could be one of their best players next season
