The Beard Liberation Front, the informal network of beard wearers, has said that after a difficult 10-2 aggregate defeat to Bayern in the Champions League Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger can survive if he grows a gravitas adding beard.

The campaigners say that Wenger’s clean shaven appearance is not helping and that beards often give a boost to football managers in hard times. For example West Ham Slaven Bilic was clean shaven when the club were in the relegation zone early in the season. Now he has a full organic beard and the club are firmly mid-table.

BLF Organiser Keith Flett said, Wenger needs to follow the example of that other Islington icon, Arsenal fan and great survivor Jeremy Corbyn, and grow a beard.
