Jamie Carragher has criticised Arsenal fans for their recent treatment of manager Arsene Wenger.

Gunners supporters held up a banner during the recent 1-0 win over West Brom, reading: ‘Arsene, thanks for the memories but it’s time to say goodbye’.

The Frenchman was also reportedly booed by fans when travelling back from Stoke following Saturday’s 3-2 defeat at the Britannia Stadium on Saturday.

And former Liverpool defender Carragher has hit out at the way the 65-year-old has been treated by some sections of Arsenal fans.

“If I could think of one word to sum up Arsenal as a football club it would be ‘class’. How they go about things, how they do things,” Carragher told Sky Sports.

“That was classless from the supporters. The banner at West Brom, the reaction at the train station at Stoke.

“Considering what Arsene Wenger’s done – no-one should have a job for life and I’m sure there will be questions at the end of the season – but the day he leaves that club they’ll be building a statue of him, the job that he’s done.

“You should never, ever react to a manager like that considering the job that he’s done. It was classless.”
