Wenger insists ´I am not in politics´ after latest plane protest banner

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger insists he will not be influenced by the latest banner unveiled by protesting supporters, explaining he is not in politics and only focuses on football.

The Gunners romped to an impressive 4-1 away victory over Stoke City on Saturday, keeping their hopes of a top-four finish alive courtesy of a double from Olivier Giroud as well as strikes from Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez.

But a plane banner with the words, ‘Wenger – Out Means Out’ was flown over the bet365 Stadium during the game as uncertainty continues to surround the future of the Frenchman, who is out of contract at the end of the season and yet to announce his plans.


An anti-Wenger banner was also flown in the away match against West Brom in March.

“I am not influenced by that at all,” Wenger told reporters after the match.

“I want to focus on football. I am not in politics. All the rest, for me, is less important.

“I am in sport, I love sport, I give 24 hours a day for what I love and all the rest – I am in a public job, some agree with me, some do not. But I have no special opinion on that.

“I am paid to do my job, for a club I love, and I will do that as long as I am here, with full commitment. I have nothing else to say.”
