Arsene Wenger not bothered by Arsenal fans' banner

The French boss does not care what fans think about him.


Arsene Wenger has insisted that he does not care what Arsenal fans think of him in the wake of an anti-Wenger banner being unveiled during their 4-0 FA Cup win at Hull City, as quoted by Four Four Two.

The Frenchman's future with the Gunners has come under intense scrutiny over the past two weeks following defeats to Manchester United and Swanea City which has left their Premier League title bid hanging by a thread.

On Tuesday night, visiting fans at the KC Stadium revealed a banner which read: 'Arsene, thanks for the memories but it's time to say goodbye'.

Asked what he thought of the banner, Wenger, in his 20th season as Arsenal boss, is quoted as saying by Four Four Two: "I don't care. I do not want to speak about that because it is always the same story.

"I told you already sometimes the press conferences are very boring and it is enough now. If you have any questions, you ask anybody else but you don't come back to me with that."

Wenger has won the Premier League on three occasions since joining the North Londoners in 1996, though failing to win it this season would be seen as unforgivable by supporters, given the competition.

Arsenal are five points behind leaders Leicester City, and three behind second-placed Tottenham Hotspur.
