Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger gave short shrift to renewed calls from a section of fans for him to leave during the game with Hull.
The Gunners booked their place in the sixth round of the FA Cup, where they will meet Watford, following a 4-0 win at the KC Stadium last night, but some fans are still call for his head.
‘Arsene, thanks for the memories but it’s time to say goodbye’ read a banner held aloft in the away end towards the end of the match, somewhat taking the gloss off an impressive display by the Gunners.
The banner was a reaction to Arsenal’s form away from the FA Cup, with an almighty turnaround required to overcome Barcelona in the Champions League next week, while their title chances have also slipped followed some poor results.
“There’s nothing disappointing for me – you know, I do my job,” Wenger said. “Look at the history of the club, since the club exists, and you will see that I have nothing to be scared of.”
Asked why the supporters have done it, he bristled: “I don’t care. I do not want to speak about that because it is always the same story. I told you already sometimes the press conferences are very boring and it is enough now.
“If you have any questions, you ask anybody else but you don’t come back to me with that.”
