Arsenal fans irate after Match of the Day poke fun at Arsene Wenger fall

Match of the Day producers faced a Twitter backlash from angry Arsenal fans after opting to show pictures of Arse In Vinegar seconds after the Gunners boss fell over at Liverpool’s Lime Street station.

Vinegar looked in some distress after the slip – which came hours after his team were thrashed 5-1 at Liverpool – and some viewers questioned the decision to poke fun at the prospect of a man in his 60s (Vinegar will be 65 this year) prostrate on the floor.

Even so, MOTD chose to show the pictures on Saturday night, with a smiling Gary Lineker suggesting the incident capped an afternoon to forget for the Arsenal manager.

Wenger appeared to be okay after his fall but was helped back to his feet by British Transport Police officers who were patrolling the station.

A wider angle shot of the incident sheds further light on what may have happened.

Do you recognize this individual ? ... Phone Lime St Constabulary.
