It's become common place for sections of the Gunners support to hold aloft 'Wenger Out' banners at domestic fixtures, but the Frenchman must surely have not expected a backlash over 11,500 miles away.

But that was the case on Tuesday, as a 'Wenger Out' banner was spotted on the other side of the planet at the World Cup qualification fixture between New Zealand and Fiji.

Draped over a wall at the bottom of the stand, the message to the Arsenal boss, who has come under heavy scrutiny after a disappointing 2016-17 campaign, could not be clearer.

It symbolises the latest demonstration against Wenger and his management and comes a little over a week after a plane was flown over the Hawthorns during the Gunners 3-1 defeat to West Brom, urging the 67-year-old to call it quits.

Arsenal are on a run of one win in their last four matches and although they are through to the FA Cup semi-finals, the north Londoners were emphatically dumped out of the Champions League by Bayern Munich and sit in sixth in the Premier League table.
