Piers Morgan has taken to Twitter to respond to Bob Wilson’s claims that he is “not a proper Arsenal fan”.

The Arsenal legend blasted the television presenter for his unrelenting criticism of manager Arsene Wenger and branded Morgan an “incredibly pompous individual” on Thursday afternoon.

The spat comes after Wenger’s Arsenal side slumped to a surprise 3-1 defeat by Monaco in the first leg of their Champions League last-16 tie on Wednesday night.

Morgan was quick to criticise manager Wenger in the wake of the loss and called for the Frenchman to resign on Thursday morning.

However, Gunners goalkeeping legend Wilson hit back at the former Daily Mirror editor in an interview with talkSPORT later on Thursday.

“I would like to say this about Piers Morgan,” Wilson said on the radio show.

“He claims to be an Arsenal fan, but if you’re a supporter of a club you have to be through thick, thin, laughter, smiles and tears. He has never been a proper fan.

“I see him on Twitter and he drives me mad. He’s an incredibly pompous individual and he has no understanding of what it is to be the manager of a football club. I can only tell you this about Arsene, and I am biased to a degree, but i’m not stupidly biased. You will not find any manager ever, more dedicated to doing his job than Arsene.”

Morgan was quick to respond to Wilson’s comments with a series of tweets in which he described himself as “sad” at hearing the criticism.

Arsenal must score three goals without reply in Monaco next month if they want to reach the Champions League quarter-finals.
