A clever father has faked a letter from Arsene Wenger to his young son in order to ensure he remains an Arsenal fan as opposed to following his friends in becoming a Liverpool or Manchester City fan, according to the Daily Star.
Loyal Arsenal fan Paul Gardiner believed his son was being lured to the dark side by his friends, and was afraid he would give in to temptation and become a Liverpool or a Manchester City fan.
He therefore pretended to be Arsene Wenger and wrote a letter to his son Charlie – with a cameo appearance from Alexis Sanchez – imploring him to make the right decision and stick with Arsenal.
The letter apparently worked and Charlie is now firmly in the Arsenal camp with his father.
Check out the letter below:
“I spoke to your dad this morning and was upset to learn you want to support Liverpool FC & Manchester City FC like your friends,” he wrote.
The letter continued by talking up Arsenal, insulting Liverpool, and revealing just how badly Wenger and the Arsenal players wanted Charlie to continue supporting them. ‘Wenger‘ also claimed Charlie’s father had been instructed to bring him and his sister Evie to an Arsenal game soon, to watch his favourite players in action.

He may have been a little devious with his methods, but surely the end justifies the mean? He can’t have his son supporting Liverpool or Manchester City, and Charlie will probably thank him for his deceit for years to come.
