Gary Lineker has defended Arsene Wenger on Twitter after Piers Morgan branded the Arsenal manager as a “loser”.
Morgan is known for his outbursts about Arsenal on Twitter, as he vehemently looks to convince his fellow fans that ousting Wenger would be beneficial for the Gunners.
In doing so, Morgan branded Wenger a loser after replying to a fan on his personal Twitter account when asked how he got US President-elect Donald Trump to follow him.
I think he liked my Wenger Out tweets. He hates losers…. https://t.co/YvTSlrPd0X

But Lineker, who played for North London rivals Tottenham between 1989 and 1992, disagreed with Morgan by defending Arsenal’s long-term manager on his personal Twitter account.
Arsene Wenger is most definitely not a loser. Come on, Tubs! https://t.co/KYKeUrbonE

Wenger took charge of his 1083rd match as Arsenal manager on Saturday, as his side rescued a late point against rivals Manchester United thanks to a powerful header from French striker Olivier Giroud.
With an average of 1.96 points per game as Arsenal boss, the 67-year-old manager has recorded 624 wins as manager of the Champions League outfit.
Wenger masterminded the Invincibles’ record-breaking run of 49 unbeaten league games, as well as securing three Premier League titles, six FA Cups and a Champions League runners-up medal.
But doubts are now surrounding the future of the Frenchman, after failing to win a Premier League title since 2004.
The former Monaco and Grampus Eight manager’s contract is set to end in the summer of 2017, and a new manager could be on the horizon if Morgan gets his wish.
