Arsenal legend involved in Twitter spat with club fan (and wins it)

Following the 4-0 FA Cup win over Hull City, some Arsenal fans displayed a banner asking for Arsene Wenger to leave the club.

The banner, which read “Arsene thanks for the memories but it’s time to say goodbye”, has sparked a huge reaction and debate on Twitter among Arsenal fans. Some fans supported the move, however, the majority of them criticized the decision to display the banner after a convincing win at KC Stadium.

Arsenal legend Ian Wright, who was working as a pundit during BT Sport’s coverage of the game, belonged to the latter category and called the incident “really disappointing.”

The Arsenal fan, who displayed the banner, confronted Wright on Twitter with the following tweet:

Wright responded and called the fan ‘bellend’.

Since then, the ‘now-famous’ Arsenal fan has apologized for his comments about Wright.

But, he insists that he will continue to display the banner in future games:
