Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger tells the fans to “behave properly”
Wenger asked to give a message to restless fans
March 7th, 2016
The Gunners boss has said to reporters that he wants the Arsenal fans to “behave properly” in Tuesday evening’s FA Cup clash with Hull City.
A large contingent of Gunners fans will make the journey to the KC Stadium for the fifth-round replay following a goal-less draw at the Emirates Stadium in the original tie in February.
Following that draw, the Gunners have failed to win in any competition, losing 2-0 at home to Barcelona in the Champions League and 3-2 to Manchester United in the Premier League. A second successive top-flight loss to Swansea City last Wednesday prompted scenes of unrest as some supporters voiced their discontent.
The North London side – who have managed just three wins in their last twelve outings across all competitions – rescued a point from their clash with Spurs in the North London derby at the weekend.
When asked to give a message to the fans in a press conference, Wenger said to reporters: “Behave properly everywhere and respect everybody like we want. We have these values at the club. That’s what you want to do.”
The Gunners are falling behind in the race for the Premier League title with eight points separating them from leaders Leicester City and three points remaining between themselves and arch-rivals Tottenham Hotspur.
