[Tweets] “Wow” – Fans React After Arsene Wenger Confirms He’s Leaving Arsenal

By on April 20, 2018

Arsenal fans have been reacting in a state of shock on social media after Arsene Wenger dropped the bombshell that he’ll be leaving the club at the end of the season.

Wenger has seen his position as manager come under increasing pressure this season following another disappointing campaign that’s set to end with us finishing outside the top four for the second consecutive year.

We could still salvage something from the campaign with a Europa League semi-final against Atletico Madrid set to come but even success in Europe hasn’t been enough to stop a growing number of fans calling for change.

There has been a visible decline in the number of fans attending home games in recent weeks and the vast majority of supporters have been calling for a change in management this summer.

They have got their wish as Wenger confirmed this morning in a shock statement that he will step down as Arsenal manager at the end of the season following nearly 22 years in charge.

A statement on Arsenal.com read:

“After careful consideration and following discussions with the club, I feel it is the right time for me to step down at the end of the season.

“I am grateful for having had the privilege to serve the club for so many memorable years.

“I managed the club with full commitment and integrity.

“I want to thank the staff, the players, the Directors and the fans who make this club so special.

“I urge our fans to stand behind the team to finish on a high.

“To all the Arsenal lovers take care of the values of the club.

“My love and support for ever.”

Understandably, fans have been left in a state of shock at the news. There are some supporters who have been celebrating the announcement but the vast majority have chosen to praise Wenger and acknowledge what he’s done for the club over the past 22 years.

3 Premier League titles, an unbeaten season, 7 FA Cups, 20 successive years in the Champions League, possibly a Europa League trophy and playing a key role in the move to the Emirates is a legacy that will be tough to beat.

Here are some of the reactions we’ve seen on Twitter since Wenger announced his departure:
