Arsenal need to bring Arsene Wenger’s reign to a premature end in the summer, according to Stan Collymore.

The Gunners manager is coming under pressure from some sections of the Arsenal fanbase after witnessing the north London side’s title bid fade away in the second half of the season.

Arsenal appeared to have breathed much-needed life back into their unlikely title challenge thanks to resounding victories over Everton and Watford in the Premier League in recent weeks.

However, Wenger’s players squandered a 2-0 lead to draw 3-3 with West Ham United in their last-ever trip to Upton Park on Saturday afternoon to leave Arsenal 13 points behind leaders Leicester City by the end of the Premier League weekend.

Writing in his Boylesport column, former Liverpool manager Collymore explained why a change of manager is necessary at The Emirates.

“Welcome to the cult of Arsenal and the cult of Arsene, in whom we trust, even when the evidence is so strong against Le Professeur,” Collymore wrote.

“Arsenal need a new manager, a new direction and Arsene Wenger, a man who has given English football the ‘Invincibles’ and many memorable moments needs a new challenge.”
