Gunners Gaffer dismisses provocative banner

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has refused to comment on fans’ protests against his management of the club, following the Gunners’ 1-0 victory over West Bromwich Albion this afternoon – as reported by Sky Sports News.

Supporters of the Emirates outfit have grown disillusioned with their inability to compete for the Premier League title and a large banner was seen in the Hawthorns away stand this afternoon stating;  ‘Arsene, thanks for the memories but it’s time to say goodbye’.

The Frenchman however was unfazed when asked about the banner after the final whistle, telling reporters; “I don’t comment on that. Do I need to say it again? I don’t comment on your question. Every person has responsibility to prepare for the future, always.”

He then added; “The only thing we can do is let people talk. We live in a society of total opinion but we live off not what we say but what we do, and what we do is on the pitch.”

Victory at the Hawthorns briefly propelled the north Londoners to fourth-spot, having dropped down to eighth after losing to Manchester United last weekend.

But the Red Devils have retaken the Champions League place and established a two-point lead over Arsenal, with a 3-0 victory over Hull City.
