Arsenal missed out on a top four finish for the first time in 20 years under Arsene Wenger, leading many fans to call for the French manager to leave the club.
Wenger has yet to sign a contract extension at the Emirates Stadium, and many supporters feel it is time for him to leave the club. On Sunday, the Gunners failed to better Liverpool's result in the Premier League, meaning they finish fifth and will not play in the Champions League next season.
While many fans had previously called for Wenger's exit, those calls grew louder with many prominent supporters including Piers Morgan weighing in on #WengerOut.
@IanWright0 So what's happening with Arsenal? Is Wenger staying? Is Kroenke leaving? We need to know, our club is embarrassing— ㅤ (@Bellerined) May 21, 2017

Are we going to pretend like playing the Europa League isn’t hugely embarrassing?— Arsenal Report (@ArsenalReport) May 21, 2017
However, one supporter believes the fifth-place finish is all part of Wenger's evil plan!
Wenger's planned it.— WH (@Wilshoholic) May 21, 2017
Sign a 2 year deal.
Win Europa League first year.

Retire a Legend.
