WENGER OUT! RMD, Okey Bakassi Want Arsenal Boss To Quit

By Izuchukwu Okosi:

Nollywood stars Richard Mofe Damijo and Okey Bakassi have voiced their disappointment at Saturday's 3-1 defeat of Premier League side Arsenal against West Bromwich Albion, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.

Craig Dawson grabbed a brace while Hal Robson-Kanu scored the other goal for West Brom. Alexis Sanchez scored Arsenal's only goal but went off in the second half injured as Arsenal stay fifth in the Premier League table with 50 points with a game in hand.

Both entertainers are passionate Arsenal fans but are disconsolate after the devastating defeat.

"Does what I think about Arsenal matter now?. We say the same things over and over every year," RMD told Completesportsnigeria.com.

"I'm tired of this backwardness. One moment you think they have turned the corner, the other they disappoint. As much as I want Arsene Wenger to remain as the manager, he should just go with his dignity still intact.

"As things stand, the top four is almost out of their hands. I don tire for this kind thing o, my brother. The excuses must end now. There is no stadium project or something like that."

Okey Bakassi also reacted as the Gunners faithful come to terms that the North London club may not play Champions League football next season.

"Arsenal have to change philosophy to match today's football reality," the popular comedian told Completesportsnigeria.com. "They have to increase salary cap to attract more world class players that can win trophies.

"It's not just about Wenger. If you remove him with the present club ideology, the club will collapse before it can even rebuild.

"Wenger has said he will decide soon on his future. Why the silence from the Arsenal board. It just seems to me that they are too scared to do the pragmatic thing."

Arsenal will face Manchester City next in their Premier League game on April 2 after the international break. They will face same side 21 days later in the semifinals of the Emirates FA Cup.


  • RMD and Okey Bakassi are just following after the crowd. They are fans and so are behaving like the general behaviours of the fans. Trophy trophy trophy. The fans like RMD and OB forgot that there are 20 teams in the EPL and many of them will love it with their life to be in the top 4 and Champions league year in year out. The truth of the matter is that if Arsene Wenger should leave Arsenal, top 4 will be bye bye. Of course Champions league will be gone. These Arsenal fans will regrets it and they will be calling for Wenger back on their banners. My Candide advice to these Wenger Out block of fans is to leave the man alone and let him manage Arsenal the best way he has been going about the business. You people will regret it. Know again that top clubs are just waiting around the corner to snatch him immediately Arsene Wenger is dropped. So fans like RMD and Okey Bakassi should think rationally.

  • Wenger will leave one day now,won’t he?abi na there he go die?sowhen he goes they will have the crisis wether they like it or not.so why not now?the earlier the better.i think the problem is he has been allowed o spend too many years there.

  • @yemi, I somehow agree with you that the problems to be faced if Arsene Wenger is sacked now will also be the problems to be encountered even if he is sacked in future, say in 10 years time. So why not now. Good reasoning indeed. You did not consider why Arsene cannot be removed now learning from what is happening to ManU after the exit of Alex Ferguson. ManU did not prepare a fitting successor that can follow the philosophy of ManU and know the tricks to success. Arsenal need to prepare a coach that will take over from Arsene Wenger. Arsenal is too big a club to give to anyhow coach. Some coaches have been name, especially from Spain and Italy. Do these coach play the type of smooth and entertaining football Arsenal is known to player? Juventus play rough. Sometimes even resorting to crookiness. Arsenal are too refined to go so low to do all sorts of things to win matches. Arsenal and Barca are the only 2 clubs remaining in all the 5 top league that you watch and feel they play clean. Fan cannot take that away in the name of winning trophy.
