Arsenal fans have genius response to anti-Wenger chant

Arsène Wenger led his Arsenal team out for the first time since announcing that he will be stepping down at the end of the season. His 22 year reign has had highs and lows in almost equal measure, and while fans have been calling for his exit for a few years now, even his biggest critics had only nice things to say about him.

Today’s fixture was a classic of its genre. Last few weeks of the season, nothing really to play for, sunny Sunday afternoon, let’s just have a nice day out and whoever wins, wins. That sort of game. It was more about showing Wenger gratitude for his service over the years for Arsenal fans, whose only hope of playing Champions League football next season is to win the Europa league this year.

West Ham fans decided to take this opportunity to poke some fun at the Arsenal manager, with their own variation of a classic football chant. The Hammers’ away section sang: “Arsene Wenger, he left ’cause you’re s***”.

The Arsenal fans were not going to let the visitors have the last laugh, though, and promptly responded by chanting: “”Arsene Wenger, he’s won more than you”.

Fair play, can’t really argue with that.
