Dissatisfied Arsenal fans in the ‘#WengerOut’ camp will take their protest to the skies, using crowdfunded money to hire a plane and fly banners over the Hawthorns when Arsenal meet West Brom in the Premier League this weekend.
football.london report that the televised audience could see banners with the fan messages of “No new contract” and “Wenger out” in the skies, as a section of Gunners fans go route one against their French manager.
The anti-Wenger fans have been making their feelings known to the manager and directors at the club, staging protests at Gunners’ home games against Bayern Munich and Lincoln of late.
Now these Gunners fans have taken their campaign to the next level by starting up a crowd-funding page to raise £4,000 to make their opposition stronger, and at nearly £3,000 they are 71% towards their target (at time of writing).
Th description on the JustGiving page, written by fan Chris Butler, read: “We are raising funds to help with demonstrations, advertisements and banners to encourage the owners of Arsenal, to remove Arsene Wenger from the position of manager.
“He has constantly delivered unsatisfactory results, and lifelong Gooners are fed up.”
Last week the Arsenal boss said in a press conference that the fans' opinion could influence his decision to stay at the club or not. Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri has been linked to the club should the Frenchman decide to leave.
