Wenger Defiant After Renewed Calls for Him to Leave Arsenal
Arsene Wenger has dismissed renewed calls for him to leave after Arsenal beat Hull.
Arsene Wenger gave short shrift to renewed calls for him to leave after Arsenal comprehensively beat Hull to reach the FA Cup quarter-finals.
Olivier Giroud and Theo Walcott each scored twice as the Gunners made light work of their fifth-round replay at the KC Stadium, although the 4-0 victory clearly was not enough for a section of the traveling support.
‘Arsene, thanks for the memories but it’s time to say goodbye’ read a banner held aloft in the away end towards the end of the match, somewhat taking the gloss off an impressive display by the Gunners.
“There’s nothing disappointing for me – you know, I do my job,” Wenger said.
“Look at the history of the club, since the club exists, and you will see that I have nothing to be scared of.”
Asked why the supporters had done it, he bristled: “I don’t care. I do not want to speak about that because it is always the same story.
“I told you already sometimes the press conferences are very boring and it is enough now.
“If you have any questions, you ask anybody else but you don’t come back to me with that.”
The banner was a reaction to Arsenal’s form away from the FA Cup, with an almighty turnaround required to overcome Barcelona in the Champions League next week.
