Wenger plays down protests in WBA win

WELBECK-WBALONDON, November 29- Arsene Wenger insists he will ignore the critics after Arsenal fans again called for the Gunners’ boss to quit following Saturday’s 1-0 win at West Bromwich Albion.

Wenger has had to endure numerous demands for his resignation over the last two seasons as frustration mounts over his failure to lead Arsenal to a serious challenge for the Premier League title.

And, despite the victory over Albion, the Frenchman came under fire from Gunners fans at the Hawthorns as they unveiled a banner reading ‘Arsene, thanks for the memories but it’s time to say goodbye’ at full-time.

The result, earned by Danny Welbeck’s 60th minute header, had given Arsenal back-to-back wins after their 2-0 Champions League victory over Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday.

And Wenger is adamant there is no chance he will be hounded out after 18 years in charge of the north London club.

“I don’t comment on that. Do I need to say it again? I don’t comment on your question,” Wenger said.

“Every person has responsibility to prepare for the future, always.

“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.”
