Arsenal fans react on Twitter as Barcelona senior man available in summer

By Matt Farr

Barcelona manager Luis Enrique is set to leave his post at the end of the season – and Arsenal fans are divided on Twitter over the prospect of him becoming the next Gunners boss.

The 24-time La Liga champions announced on their official Twitter account on Monday that Enrique was set to depart the club at the end of the season.

The decision was made public following Barcelona’s emphatic 6-1 win over Sporting Gijon.

Enrique’s contract was already set to expire at the end of the campaign, but his long-term future at the Nou Camp recently came under increased scrutiny after the club’s shock 4-0 defeat to Paris-Saint Germain in the Champions League last month.

The decision has sparked debate among Arsenal fans on Twitter, who are divided in their desire to see Enrique replace the under-fire Arsene Wenger in the summer.

Many groups of fans have urged the club to snap up Enrique if Wenger leaves the club, while others are worried that Enrique’s departure could see one of their preferred candidates for the Arsenal job take over at Barcelona.

Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:

Wenger has joined Enrique in the doghouse this season, after Arsenal’s hopes of a major title once again took a significant blow last month.

The Gunners have not won the Premier League in well over a decade, and fans witnessed both their league and European campaigns effectively come to an end in the last few weeks.

With Wenger out of contract at the end of the campaign, many fans believe it is time for the veteran boss to call it a day, and Barcelona’s latest announcement is only likely to make them call even louder.

In other Arsenal news, Gunners legend Bob Wilson may have incurred the wrath of the fans after admitting that Tottenham could finish above them in the league this season.
