Rio Ferdinand Slams Arsene Wenger Like Never Before



Rio Ferdinand is not holding back, and he’s definitely not messing around. The former central defender, Manchester United club legend and current TV pundit for BT Sport called the current Arsenal side the worst that he has seen during his lifetime. He also compared this stage of Gunners manager Arsene Wenger’s career to when he himself was past his prime and just playing out the string with Queens Park Rangers.

The #WengerOut pitchforks, always with some substantial momentum lately, will be ramped up again as Arsenal fell 2-1 to newly promoted Brighton & Hove Albion, which marked the Gunners fourth straight defeat across all competitions.

The 3-0 midweek blowout at the hands of Manchester City put Arsenal’s chances for finishing in the top four this season teetering on the brink. The upset loss today essentially evaporated those chances as the Gunners fell 13 points behind fourth place with just nine left to play.

It’s been about as awful a week for Wenger as we’ve ever seen, and Rio Ferdinand gave a very candid assessment on his official verified Twitter account:

Lots of Gunners supporters will no doubt agree, at least to an extent, with what Rio Ferdinand had to say there. While so many want to see Wenger leave, the Frenchman has said that he very much intends to see out his contract extension, which runs until the end of next season. 

One thing looks almost certain- Wenger won’t leave unless he is forced to.
