THE MAN who appointed Arsene Wenger as Arsenal boss has called for him to go. Former chairman Peter Hill-Wood appointed Wenger in 1996 and has been his staunchest supporter. But last night Hill-Wood said for the first time the Gunners needed a change. “I clearly am not very happy about what is going on,” said Hill-Wood, 82, who stood down as chairman in 2013 for health reasons. “I think that there probably ought to be a change of management. “He has done fabulously well, it is just he has overstayed his welcome. “I find it very sad because he was the great love of many and then it (overstaying his welcome) has destroyed it all.” Wenger is under huge pressure to go following a shocking run of form and seven defeats in 2018.
