Arsene Wenger’s future has divided supporters like no issue before – you’re either trust in the Frenchman completely or you feel it’s time he moved on. Alex Iwobi seems to be firmly placed in the former camp but this isn’t the only reason “Wexit” fans are outraged.
The Arsenal forward went on to criticize Gunners’ fans as “impatient” as news over Wenger’s future trickles through. Fans who have been witness to a string of disappointing performances would not take kindly to their concerns being scrutinized as as they have grown disenchanted with their side’s repeated failures.
Iwobi is well-liked amongst the Emirates’ faithful, but after his recent comments one shouldn’t expect jersey with his name on the back to fly off the shelves.
Check out his comment, and fans’ reactions, below:
Iwobi on fans/AW (Mail): 'They need to have a bit more respect…they're a bit impatient with the results and where they want to finish.'

Iwobi says we need to give Wenger more time ….he may have a point as I don't believe 13 years is long enough 😨

Rather than Iwobi and Monreal backing our dear manager, perhaps they could prove it on the pitch, walk the walk lads stop your talking
