'Wexit': Arsenal fans stage Arsene Wenger protest before FA Cup match

The FC panel share their thoughts on the prospect of Arsene Wenger leaving Arsenal to manage Paris Saint-Germain.

LONDON -- Arsenal fans staged another protest march ahead of the team's FA Cup game against Lincoln City on Saturday, calling for Arsene Wenger to leave the club this summer.

Carrying banners reading "Wexit" and "Time for change," a couple of hundred disgruntled supporters gathered at the club's old Highbury stadium before marching to the Emirates.

They staged a similar protest ahead of Tuesday's 5-1 loss to Bayern Munich in the Champions League, which drew a similar crowd.

Wenger's contract expires this summer, and a growing number of the club's fans have started calling for him to step down at the end of the season.

Tuesday's first protest came after another 5-1 loss to Bayern in the first leg Munich along with 3-1 defeats at Chelsea and Liverpool that ended any realistic prospect of fighting for the Premier League title.

Arsenal fans display their opposition to Arsene Wenger ahead of the FA Cup clash with Lincoln.

Wenger said on Thursday that fans' opinion will be a factor when he decides whether to stay on, while club chairman Sir Chips Keswick issued a statement that a decision will be taken "mutually" and communicated "at the right time." 

On Saturday, fans finished their march in front of the entrance that club directors and VIP guests use at the Emirates Stadium, chanting "We want Wenger out."

Arsenal are trying to win the FA Cup for the third time in four years, and the competition now represents their only chance of silverware in what could be Wenger's last season in charge.
