Arsenal’s fans are well known for their outspoken ways and forthright opinions – especially when it comes to Arsene Wenger.

Individuals such as ‘Claude’ or ‘Troopz’ both spring to mind with their militant anti-Wenger rhetoric and impassioned interviews on Arsenal TV decrying the Frenchman.

But one fan has taken the ‘Wenger Out’ movement to a whole new level, comparing Wenger to long-serving Zimbabwean dictator Robert Mugabe.

In a video that has gone viral on social media, the unnamed fan argued that Wenger has “ruined” Arsenal football club - in the same way Mugabe has ruined Zimbabwe.

The fan said: “I used to live in Zimbabwe and I’ve watched Robert Mugabe ruin the country, and Wenger is doing the same. He’s the Mugabe of Arsenal.”

Mugabe, 93, has dominated Zimbabwe’s politics for nearly four decades now, stripping the country of free press while crushing any political opposition that has attempted to challenge him. 

Critics have viewed Mugabe as a dictator responsible for economic mismanagement and widespread corruption whose regime has perpetrated human rights abuses and crimes against humanity.

For 36 ruthless years he has presided over Zimbabwe, strengthening his grasp on governance in the country.

In contrast, Wenger has managed Arsenal for 21 years, during which time he has led the Gunners to three Premier League titles and six FA Cups while revolutionising the culture and ethos around the club.
