Arsenal great Ian Wright had to turn off the embarrassing 5-1 defeat at Bayern Munich after going into a Twitter meltdown over what was unfolding at the Allianz Arena, with his former club heading for a seventh Champions League last-16 exit in a row.

53-year-old Wright hinted last week that Arsene Wenger’s time at Arsenal may be nearing its conclusion after the manager told him he is “coming to the end”, a revelation that caused a stir among Arsenal fans across the globe.

However, the former England striker summed up the feelings of those same Arsenal supporters on Wednesday night as Wenger’s side suffered a second-half meltdown in Munich, conceding four goals to suffer a heavy 5-1 defeat and put them on the brink of Champions League elimination.

The Gunners will need to beat Bayern 4-0 in the return leg in three weeks’ time, a result that is highly unlikely given Arsenal’s poor performance in Germany, and Wright could not hold his frustration in any longer as he watched the nightmare unfold before him.

After Alexis Sanchez had levelled the scores at 1-1, Bayern struck again through Robert Lewandowski, with two goals following inside 10 minutes as Thiago Alcantara bagged himself a double before substitute Thomas Muller completed the rout.

Cue Wright’s angry outburst as the four second-half goals went in.

2-1...

3-1...

4-1...

5-1...

The result has put further pressure on Wenger to leave the club when his contract expires at the end of the season, and with Wright’s revelations of “the end is coming” still fresh in the memory, it appears Wenger’s time is running out.
