Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has some pretty high profile supporters in the media despite the travails of recent weeks at The Emirates.

Chief amongst them is former Arsenal striker Ian Wright who sticks up for Wenger on a regular basis.

A feeling of mutiny has hit pretty hard at Arsenal in the aftermath of the 2-1 FA Cup quarter-final defeat to Watford on Sunday.

The FA Cup was supposed to bring relief to Wenger but the two-time champions exited with a whimper to a gallant display from The Hornets.

And, with a Champions League exit likely at Barcelona on Wednesday, Arsenal only have the Premier League to play for, and catching Leicester seems unlikely at this point.

Arsenal fans hoisted a banner at Hull on Tuesday night saying: “Arsene – Thanks For The Memories But It’s Time To Say Goodbye”.

And, this was after a 4-0 victory.

On Monday, David Beckham took to Instagram and posted a simple message on a post about this banner with Arsenal fans calling for Wenger to leave.

The Manchester United legend wrote: “Disgraceful … No respect attention seekers”.

Beckham did not play for Arsenal but clearly knows Wenger well having trained with the Gunners during his playing career. And, Brooklyn Beckham also spent time at the Arsenal Academy.

Next up for Arsenal and Arsene Wenger, the small matter of a second leg against Barcelona at the Nou Camp.
