Arsenal new boy Runar Alex Runarsson forced to delete tweets calling Arsene Wenger ‘French f*** and dumb’ ahead of move

ARSENAL target Runar Alex Runarsson has been forced to delete tweets calling Arsene Wenger a “French f*** and dumb” ahead of his proposed transfer.

The Gunners are closing in on a £1.5million deal for the Icelandic goalkeeper.

The Icelandic goalkeeper labelled the legendary manager a ‘French f***’, ‘dumb’ and ‘stupid’ in 2011

And he has been frantically trying to save face by axing a series of tweets posted nine years ago slamming the legendary Arsenal boss.

The first, from April 21, 2011 and originally written in Icelandic, said: “Hell, this Wenger guy is stupid.”

That was sent the day after squandering a 3-1 lead to draw 3-3 in a North London derby with Tottenham.

Another, posted on June 15 by the apparently-frustrated Gooner, read: “Arsene Wenger is a little too stupid #frenchf***.”

And a third, from August 21 that year, reads: “Arsene Wenger is definitely the dumbest man on this planet #frenchf***.”

It is not totally clear what infuriated Runarsson so much, although by the latest tweet the Gunners had sold Cesc Fabregas to Barcelona.

They went on to lose Samir Nasri to Manchester City and get stuffed 8-2 by Manchester United soon afterwards.

It comes just weeks after Arsenal-supporting Matt Doherty hilariously got rid of his own tweets declaring his love for the Gunners after joining rivals Tottenham.

Arsenal fans were split on social media whether or not their club should still try to sign a player who openly criticised the record-breaking former gaffer.

According to the Telegraph, Arsenal have opened talks with Ligue 1 side Dijon where Runarsson has spent the last two seasons.

The 25-year-old has five caps for Iceland and was also part of their 2018 World Cup squad.

Arsenal’s goalkeeping coach, Inaki Cana, knows Runarsson well having worked with him at his previous club Nordsjaelland.

Arteta wants a new No2 to keep the pressure on current first choice Bernd Leno following the £20m sale of Emiliano Martinez to Aston Villa.

As revealed by SunSport, Brentford stopper David Raya is another target but would cost a hefty £10m from the Championship outfit.
