    ARSENAL fans have told boss Unai Emery to “resign” and “retire” after his message of goodwill to David Villa.

    The Spanish midfielder has announced he will hang up his boots at the end of the season.

    The 37-year-old will lead a new US franchise Queensboro FC in New York as part of an investment group.

    Emery, who managed Villa between 2008 and 2010 before he joined Barcelona, posted a congratulatory message in Spanish on Twitter.

    But it has not gone down well with Gunners supporters.

    Many simply replied back to the tweet “leave”, “retire” and “out” in a clear indication that patience is wearing thin with the Spanish gaffer.

    Another posted: “Leave our Arsenal alone”, with telling him to “retire with him”.

    But the actions of some were blasted by fellow supporters who described it as showing “zero class”.

    FIFA have hired Arsene Wenger in a full-time role leading its global work developing soccer.

    The former Arsenal manager accepted Fifa's offer more than two months after it was first reported, and one week after talks with Bayern Munich about the German champions vacant head coach job.

    Fifa says Wenger's title will be Chief of Global Football Development.

    He will oversee the rules-making panel known as IFAB, coaching programs and technical analysis of games at Fifa tournaments.

    The 70-year-old Frenchman effectively replaces Marco van Basten who was Fifa technical director until October 2018.

    Wenger has worked as an analyst for broadcasters since leaving Arsenal last year after 22 seasons.
