Ex-Tottenham player Graham Roberts has trolled Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger on Twitter, urging him to to remain at the club next season following the Gunners 2-1 home defeat against Ostersunds in the Europa League on Thursday night.
After a 3-0 win away against the Swedish club in the first-leg, it was thought that the return visit would just be a formality despite the Frenchman’s much-changed starting XI.
However, a formality it was not, as the Gunners put on a pitiful display where they were overrun in every position on the field and found themselves 2-0 down in the opening 25 minutes.
Graham Potter’s side took the lead through a deflected effort from Hosam Aiesh which went in off Callum Chambers, and Ken Sema added a second to make it a night that most involved with the club will want to forget.
But following the result, Roberts took to Twitter to urge Spurs’ rival manager to stay on in North London – suggesting that with Wenger at the helm, Arsenal were likely to remain in the footballing wilderness.
Mr Arsene Wenger please stay next season

The Gunners boss penned a new two-year deal at the Emirates last summer despite the feeling of discontent surrounding the club.
FA Cup victories and forays into the Champions League have been the pinnacle for the Arsenal faithful but after dropping out of Europe’s top competition last season, and looking unlikely to return this, there have been murmurings that Wenger will be off this summer.
But, if Roberts has it his way, the Gunners manager will stay and maintain Tottenham’s status as the number one team in North London.
