Pompous Piers Morgan has 'never been a proper Arsenal fan', says Gunners great.

Gunners legend Bob Wilson reckons former Daily Mirror editor Piers Morgan is a pompous man and isn’t a real Arsenal fan.

The Arsenal boss has come under scrutiny from fans and also Piers after their 3-1 defeat to the Monaco at the Emirates. But Wilson has decided to gave his backing to Arsene Wenger.

While speaking to talkSPORT, he said: “I would like to say this about Piers Morgan.

"He claims to be an Arsenal fan, but if you’re a supporter of a club you have to be through thick, thin, laughter, smiles and tears. He has never been a proper fan.

"I see him on Twitter and he drives me mad. He’s an incredibly pompous individual and he has no understanding of what it is to be the manager of a football club. I can only tell you this about Arsene, and I am biased to a degree, but I’m not stupidly biased. You will not find any manager ever, more dedicated to doing his job than Arsene.

"With him it's always about the man before the player and that’s very rare for a manager. His first concern is about you as an individual rather than you as a player. Always has been and always will be,” the former Arsenal goalkeeper continued.

"He’s been there for a long time with incredible glory times, league titles, appeared in a Champions League and FA Cup finals. He's changed the club totally.

"Above all that thought he’s a really decent human being, who cares."
