Arsene Wenger has discussed a banner Arsenal fans unfurled against Hull which read: ‘Arsene, Thanks for the memories but it’s time to say goodbye.’
Arsenal thrashed Championship Hull 4-0 in an FA Cup fifth-round replay on Tuesday, setting up a quarter-final tie with Watford as the Gunners look to win a third consecutive trophy.
The match was somewhat soured after fans in the away end at the KC Stadium unfurled a banner expressing their dissatisfaction with the manager, who has won just two FA Cups and no Premier League titles since 2005.
Wenger described speculation over his job as ‘boring’ after nearly 20 years in the post earlier this week, and the Frenchman was asked about the banner after his side secured their first victory in six games.
“There’s nothing disappointing for me,” the manager said. “I do my job. Look at the history of the club, since the club exists, and you will see that I have nothing to be scared of. I don’t care. I do not want to speak about that because it is always the same story. It is enough now. If you have any questions ask other people.
“Do you know someone who has won it [the FA Cup] more than me?” Wenger then asked.
He continued: “We judge the season afterwards and I’m quite amazed so many people judge it so early. We have not given up anywhere and you will see that in the coming weeks. This club has been in a much worse position than it is today.”
