Arsenal fan and comedian Alan Davies launches rant – tells City owners ‘get out’

Comedian and Arsenal fan Alan Davies has blasted Manchester City owners to 'sell up and go home'.

Davies, best known for his appearances on QI, launched into the extraordinary rant on the Arsenal podcast The Tuesday Club.

The podcast was unpacking the Gunners' clash with Pep Guardiola's side on New Years Day, which saw a series of controversial decisions.

Arsenal put in their best performance of the season, and arguably one of their bets under Mikel Arteta, but still came up short to the rampant Sky Blues.

And the comedian fumed at City's owners in a rant that told them to 'go home'.

Davies said: "There is a stink of Manchester City in our league and I just wish this mob had bought a club in another league.

"Go buy Borussia Monchengladbach, take them past Bayern Munich to the top of… whatever their league is called, just do that… the Bundesliga.

"Do that, go buy someone else, get out of our league. We do not want your money.

"Do not pretend you are playing great stuff and Guardiola's a genius and this is amazing, we're so privileged to see you… get out of our league.

"You're not wanted here. You're not wanted.

"Sell up and leave. You've had your fun, go away.

"No one wants the oil b****** money, no one wants to see this.

"To come here with that attitude to football, that attitude to the opposition, that attitude to the opposition fans, that attitude to Arsenal itself which is a football institution to this country."

City looked way off the pace for the first half, and despite Bukayo Saka's strike, the Gunners felt aggrieved that Martin Odegaard wasn't awarded a spot-kick.

Guardiola's side were then awarded a penalty when Bernardo Silva was dragged down in the box, before Gabriel received a red card.

City spun the game on its head with goals through Riyad Mahrez and a 93rd-minute winner from Rodri.

Davies concluded: "To come here to behave like that in our stadium, stinking of money, filthy, cheating, in the referee's ear, diving, pulling shirts, mouthing off a whole game, you stink! You stink out football.
