Arsenal to Drop Andre Santos for Half-Time Robin Van Persie Shirt Request

Emirates Stadium full-back set for axe.

Check-In to Arsenal v Fulham

Arsenal left-back Andre Santos could lose his place in the wake of his bizarre shirt controversy during the 2-1 defeat at Manchester United.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is considering removing out-of-form Santos from the firing line for the Champions League trip to Schalke tomorrow night.

Brazilian Santos caused ­controversy by asking former ­­team-mate Robin van Persie for his shirt at half-time against United.

Kieran Gibbs, who is back in training, is ready to return or Thomas Vermaelen could play left-back. Laurent Koscielny may even return in central defence.

One would have thought the Brazilian’s inept display at Old Trafford would warrant being dropped ahead of his bizarre decision to request Robin Van Persie’s shirt at half-time.

The Gunners wide-man had a shocker and is beginning to look like a player Wenger should look to offload in January. The 29 year old is postionally unaware, error prone and seemingly unable to cross a ball and given the good form Kieran Gibbs showed before he was once again side-lined, there is a decent chance that the former Fenerbahce man could be on his way to the Emirates Stadium exit.
