Wenger confronted by angry fan during Arsenal loss

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger was confronted by an angry supporter during his side’s 2-0 loss at Southampton in the Premier League on New Year’s Day.

The man was seen to run towards the dug-outs and apparently taunt Wenger towards the end of the game at St Mary’s, which enabled Southampton to pull three points clear of Arsenal in the race for a top-four finish.

Wenger and his assistant Steve Bould gestured for the man, who was wearing jeans and a purple hooded top, to move away before he was eventually led off by stadium stewards.

Arsenal ended their nine-year trophy drought under Wenger by beating Hull City in last season’s FA Cup final.

But the Frenchman, who has been at Arsenal since 1996, has come under pressure from supporters after some disappointing results this season.

Fans unfurled a banner calling for him to stand down during Arsenal’s 1-0 win at West Bromwich Albion in November, while he was barracked by supporters as he boarded a train after last month’s 3-2 loss at Stoke City.
