Arsene Wenger RIDICULED by Arsenal fans after Reiss Nelson destroys him in training

ARSENAL manager Arsene Wenger has never been known for his ability on the pitch – and on this evidence, it is not hard to see why.

The veteran Frenchman donned a Gunners' tracksuit and lined up next to some of the team's promising youngsters during a training session at the club's Colney practice facility.

After dapping Eddie Nketiah with a playful fist bump, Wenger jogged over to Nelson - who had the ball at his feet - and attempted to tackle the talented winger.

Nelson accepted the challenge and proceeded to make a mockery of his coach with some silky footwork as the 68-year-old was left bamboozled.

Wenger almost toppled over as Nelson zipped off down the training complex - and fans absolutely loved it.

"I'll honestly never understand people who actually hate Wenger," read one comment.

"I understand not wanting him to be Arsenal manager anymore, hell I don't want him to remain either.

"But actually hating him is so absurd to me."

"I wonder what went through Nelson's mind when Wenger went to tackle him," another wrote.

"Do you try to break Wenger's ankles with a sweet dribble but go too hard when he was just playing or do you let him get the ball because he's your manager, even though you got dispossessed by a 70-year-old?"

"Man like Weng going around spudding the players. What a man," added a third.

The Gunners welcome Swedish minnows Ostersunds FK to the Emirates this week for the second leg of their Europa League round of 32 showdown.

Only an absolute catastrophe could prevent Wenger's men - who are 3-0 up after the first leg - from qualifying for the last 16.
