Dixon "gob-smacked" by Arsenal fans wanting Wenger gone

Former Arsenal fullback Lee Dixon cannot believe the criticism that was levelled at Arsene Wenger by angry shareholders last week.

"I am gob-smacked that people have started calling for his head," the 45-year-old said in the London Evening Standard.

"People are very short-sighted. It is the modern-day supporter who wants success yesterday.

"Yes, we have gone four seasons without a trophy and have been off the pace in the Premier League this season, which is Wenger's trophy priority, but he is as frustrated as anyone else."
