'Arsenal fans may 'regret' how they treated Arsene Wenger in his final few years.' Freddie Ljungberg.

Arsenal football club continues to regress following the departure of Arsene Wenger three years ago. The club bid to win a trophy suffered a humiliating death after they were knocked out of the Europa League by failing to score a single goal at home.

Arsenal, who were beaten 2-1 by former Arsenal coach Unai Emery’s Villarreal needed to score a single unanswered goal to proceed to the final. However, this did not happen, with the team failing to score, despite Aubameyang hitting the post twice in either half.

Former Gunner player Freddie Ljungberg maintains that his old team’s supporters may be ‘regretting’ how they acted towards Arsene Wenger during his last years in charge of the club.

While speaking ahead of Arsenal’s Europa League semi-final tie with Villarreal, Ljungberg said:

“I flew back from Sweden to say goodbye to Arsene.

“The fans were complaining about him at the end of his term. Now maybe they are regretting how they behaved towards him. He’s so big at this club.”

Speaking about Arsenal’s deterioration, the Swede added:

“It’s disappointing to see.

“I love the club and respect them but to be ninth or tenth in the league and not challenging for the Europa League spots and we have to rely on the Europa League, that’s quite hard to take.”

Fellow BT Sport pundit Martin Keown alleged that Arsene Wenger deserves to remain behind the scenes at the club now, as fans extend their protest against current owners Stan Kroenke.

The former Gunners defender said:

“I think he (Wenger) carried the club on his back for those 22 years. From the old ground to the new ground, all the work behind the scenes as well. And now the club is slipping back.

“He’s not within the club as a president or part of the board. I can’t understand that.

“Let’s look to the future, the current owners don’t want to put money in. Maybe it’s time for a change. Maybe that’s afoot.”
