In Wenger We Rust - van drives protests against Arsenal manager up a gear

Arsenal supporters have continued their protests against under-fire manager Arsene Wenger ahead of Sunday's Premier League match against Manchester City - hiring a van decked out in slogans criticising the Frenchman. 

A run of four defeats from their last five Premier League games means the Gunners have dropped to sixth in the table, level on points with Everton, and their Champions League qualification is in doubt as a result.

Arsenal's last match against West Brom saw rival planes flown over The Hawthorns in bizarre scenes, with the first trailing a banner that read "No contract. #WengerOut" followed by another that said "In Arsene We Trust. #RespectAW".

And protests have stepped up a gear for the pivotal match against City, with supporters renting a van to display an even longer message calling for the veteran manager, who is out of contract at the end of the season, to depart after 20 years in the post.

"Twenty years in Europe and we're still waiting..." reads the message on the van, which also features the motif "In Wenger We Trust" - with the T crossed out so it instead reads "In Wenger We Rust".
