Piers Morgan reveals Arsenal should rename the Emirates to the ‘Arsene Wenger Stadium’ in the future

apierPIERS MORGAN has sensationally claimed he would be happy for the Emirates to be renamed the ‘Arsene Wenger Stadium’ in the future.

The 53-year-old has spearheaded the #WengerOut brigade in recent years, and has finally got his wish after Wenger announced earlier this morning he would leave his role at the end of the season.

Morgan has long campaigned for the 68-year-old to leave the Emirates, as Arsenal have have consistently fallen behind their rivals, and haven’t won the Premier League in 14 years.

The Gunners currently sit in sixth place in the top-flight – just two points above Burnley – and are in danger of missing out on Champions League football yet again.

Speaking on talkSPORT, Arsenal supporter Morgan spoke of how although he’s not his biggest fan, he will be singing his name against West Ham on Sunday.

He said: “I’ve led the Wenger Out campaign on social media, but I don’t feel gleeful.

Arsene Wenger has been in charge of the North London side since 1996, where hehas won three Premier League titles.

“I’m not gloating about it today – I just wish he’d done it years ago. He lost me when he sold Robin van Persie to Man United. That did it for me.

“Last year was Wenger’s worst ever year, this year is even worse. It’s time to go, I’ve known that for the last eight years.

“It’s a good day for Arsenal, but it’s also a sad day for Arsenal. I’ll be singing ‘one Arsene Wenger’ on Sunday – he’s done the right thing.

“I would honestly be very happy to call the Emirates Stadium the ‘Arsene Wenger Stadium’ in the future.”

Morgan was quick to take to Twitter after learning of the news earlier today, simply commenting “Wenger out” as footballers and pundits praised the excellence of the Frenchman.
