Rwandan president who tweeted for Arsenal to fire Wenger backtracks after Emirates trip

An Arsenal fan with an important role in the world watched their big win over Napoli.

Piers Morgan is seemingly not the only high profile fan to change his mind about Arsene Wenger.

In January, Paul Kagame, the President of Rwanda caused controversry when he tweeted his belief that the Frenchman should step down as manager of Arsenal.

He wrote at the time, "I very much support Arsenal - but to be honest Wenger needs to coach another team now and Arsenal needs another coach," 

"When a good team (players) and a good coach fail for long to deliver, one of them has to change, or even both!!"

Italians rate Ozil a 7.5 out of 10 and Giroud 7 - Too low?

10 months on the African head of state appears to have changed his tune, taking time off official duties to fly to England to watch Arsenal in the Champions League.

Following the 2-0 win inspired by goals from Ozil and Giroud, Kagame took to Twitter to say how much he enjoyed his experience - importantly congratulating Arsene Wenger.

It would take a cruel man to call for Wenger's head after the run the Gunners have been on. Fair play to Kagame for offering the Frenchman his best wishes following his previous call.

We just hope his jolly to the Emirates has not caused him any bad press at home...
