Phil Neville's warning to the demanding Arsenal supporters

Arsenal V Newcastle

A number of Arsenal fans have turned on boss Arsene Wenger this season.

Former Manchester United defender and now renowned pundit Phil Neville has warned Arsenal supporters that driving manager Arsene Wenger out of the club could be a bad decision.

The Frenchman has come in for staunch criticism from a section of the Emirates faithful this season.

The Gunners currently lie in sixth spot in the Premier League table, three points behind the top four and a whopping 13 adrift of league leaders Chelsea.

Aside from their unpredictability in the league, the North Londoners exited the League Cup in disappointing fashion and had to settle for second place in their Champions League group behind Borussia Dortmund.

Such situations, however, aren’t new to Wenger’s side, and if history is anything to go by then a top-four spot and a solid FA Cup run is still very much a big possibility.

Certain fans, however, are discontent with the so-called lack of ambition around the club, but Neville fears that those same people could be in for a rude awakening the moment Wenger opts to call it a day.

“Arsenal fans should beware — you don’t always get exactly what you wish for,” Neville was quoted as saying by The Sun.

“The grass isn’t always greener. And if they were to get rid of him, they may soon be pining for the days when Arsenal got into the Champions League every season and played entertaining football.

“For me, they are so close to having a team that can win the Premier League title. They need one or two more players to do it. They need to be stronger defensively — and then they’re pretty much the real deal.

“Getting a new manager could see the club rip up their blueprint, which could destroy them.”
