Arsene Wenger takes an online battering for wearing Speedos on Rio beach

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has been in Brazil commentating for French channel TF1 and reportedly looking to tie up transfers.

Whilst in Rio we have been treated to daily pictures and video of Wenger on the beach, taking photos with fans and even playing a bit of football.

On Sunday a new picture emerged of The Professor wearing blue Speedos and his choice of beach wear has been criticised online pretty much ever since.

We can hardly excuse the blue Speedos but it needs to be pointed out that the Arsenal manager is 64-years-old – we doubt many of those taking the piss are in as good a shape as Wenger despite being significantly younger.

Especially Piers Morgan!
