For years now, Arsenal fans have been calling for the removal of Arsene Wenger as the Arsenal manager. Wenger has helped Arsenal stamp their successful past as one of the biggest clubs in world football. It all seems like a lifetime ago, it’s been almost 14 years since Arsenal last won the premier league. Perhaps it’s getting to a point where Wenger is going to tarnish his legacy.
