Alan Pardew says Arsenal should name The Emirates after their “unbelievable” manager Arsene Wenger.

The Gunners boss has come under pressure in recent weeks after a disappointing run of results in the Premier League, prompting some Arsenal fans to call for Wenger to leave the north London club.

The Frenchman, who has led the Gunners to three Premier League titles, masterminded their FA Cup triumph last season, whilst his side are in the last 16 of the Champions League.

And Newcastle manager Pardew reckons the 13-time English champions would do well to name the Emirates Stadium after their decorated manager.

Pardew said: “Arsene Wenger has done an unbelievable job at Arsenal and in some ways their stadium should be named after him.

“Arsenal has not been a happy hunting ground for us in recent years. The games at St James’s Park have been tight and we hope this one is too.”

Newcastle make the trip to Arsenal on Saturday afternoon.
