Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has claimed that he “did not mean” to like a post on Twitter suggesting that Arsene Wenger should step down as Arsenal manager.
Arsenal’s chances of winning the Premier League title suffered a major blow on Saturday as they were beaten 3-1 by Chelsea to fall 12 points behind the league leaders, resulting in ‘Wenger Out’ messages trending once more on Twitter.
Arsene Wenger said this week that he would make a “gut decision” on whether he would stay or go at the end of the season, but Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain appears to accidentally added fuel to the calls for the Frenchman’s reign to end.
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain was caught having liked a Twitter post from popular Arsenal YouTube channel, Arsenal Fan TV, with a video entitled ‘Wenger Needs to Go!’
Oxlade-Chamberlain later confirmed that he had no idea that he had managed to like the tweet, and appeared to see the funny side of it.
I didn't mean to like that post earlier obviously… Didn't even realise I had!
