No one can quite believe that this Arsenal fan compared Arsene Wenger to Robert Mugabe

This is 100% legitimate. He actually said this.

Is he actually for real?

One has been the manager of Arsenal for 21 years, and led them to three Premier League titles and six FA Cups, whilst revolutionising the culture and ethos around the club, and successfully transitioning their move to a new stadium without jeopardising their financial stability or Champions League status.

The other is the 92-year-old despot ruler of Zimbabwe who has presided over 36 years of ruthless tyranny. There is no free press, any political opposition is crushed, and protestors are treated like enemies of the state. Life expectancy in Zimbabwe under Mugabe has fallen from 62 years in 1990 to 36 in 2006.

It is therefore somewhat bizarre and not a little sick that an Arsenal fan would seriously compare Wenger to the African dictator, but that’s precisely what what this Gooner did, and in youth parlance, the internet ‘can’t even’. Indeed staunch ‘Wenger Out’ dissenters can scarcely comprehend the comparison.

ArsenalFan TV may as well give – nothing would be more outlandish than this…
