Ian Wright reacts to Arsenal’s 4-0 win at Hull
Ian Wright has his say after Arsenal book their place in the FA Cup quarter-finals with a 4-0 win at Hull
Ian Wright was not happy to see Arsenal fans unfurl a banner against Arsene Wenger after the Gunners thrashed Hull 4-0 to reach the FA Cup quarter-finals.
After the final whistle, fans in the away end unfurled a banner reading ‘Arsene, thanks for the memories, but it’s time to say goodbye.’
And speaking on BT Sport after the game, Wright said: “It’s very disappointing. Yes, we’ve had a couple of bad results but it’s not over by any stretch of the imagination.
“A 4-0 win tonight, it’s really disappointing to see that.”
He added: “The fact is, Arsene Wenger’s doing his best. Sometimes they have to look at the players and the way they’ve performed. You can’t completely keep caning the manager like that.
“They won it comfortably and they were under pressure going into this game. To see that sign is just annoying.”
The north London side were gifted the lead in the 41st minute when Olivier Giroud latched on to David Meyler’s misplaced pass to fire home.
It was 2-0 in the 71st minute when Giroud fired in Theo Walcott’s cross.
And Walcott made it 3-0 with a cool finish shortly after, before adding further gloss to the scoreline in the 88th minute.
The result means that Arsenal will now play Watford in the quarter-final at Emirates Stadium on Sunday afternoon.
