Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew has hit out at Arsenal fans calling for manager Arsene Wenger to be sacked.
Some disgruntled Gooners have displayed ‘Wenger Out’ banners at recent games, while a group of supporters booed and shouted abuse at the Frenchman at a railway station following Saturday’s 3-2 defeat at Stoke City.
Pardew has been the subject of similar criticism for many months at Newcastle, although the boo-boys have been kept rather quiet of late, with the Magpies winning seven of their last nine matches.
Wenger has been Arsenal’s manager since 1996 and he has masterminded three Premier League titles and five FA Cups, as well as qualifying for the Champions League group phase in 17 consecutive seasons.
Pardew thinks that his Arsenal counterpart deserves much more respect, suggesting that the 65-year-old has done enough to have the stadium named after him.

Newcastle travel to the Emirates on Saturday. A win for Pardew’s men would send them above Arsenal in the Premier League table.
However, the North-East side have lost each of their last five games against the Gunners, conceding 14 goals in the process.
