Arsenal fans call for Wenger to replace Keswick as chairman

Arsenal fans are calling for Arsene Wenger to return and replace retiring chairman Sir Chips Keswick.

Keswick, 80, stood down yesterday after 15 years on the club's board.

And almost as soon as it was announced, Arsenal supporters took to social media to demand a return of Wenger, reports The Sun.

Wenger, who left the Gunners two summers ago, is currently working with FIFA.

But it seems fans will be disappointed anyway after owner Stan Kroenke said in a statement that there will be no new additions to the board.

A statement on the Arsenal website read: "Moving forward the board will be composed of Stan Kroenke, Josh Kroenke, Lord Harris and Ken Friar."
