Newcastle manager Alan Pardew says that Arsenal should rename their stadium in honour of their manager Arsene Wenger.

Pardew, whose Newcastle side face Arsenal this weekend, says his counterpart's achievements at the Gunners would warrant such a move.

"The stadium should be named after Arsène. The job he did with that move across from Highbury, when he had all that debt and had to be very careful with his transfer budget, was incredible. It was a miracle that he kept them in the Champions League.”

Pardew also condemned the Arsenal fans that booed Wenger at a train station after the loss to Stoke last weekend.

"The incident at the train station was totally disrespectful,” he added. “I think 90% of Arsenal fans have been ashamed of that and we could get the backlash of it. The crowd on Saturday will want to show how much they love him. After Sir Alex Ferguson he’s the best manager in Premier League history. José Mourinho hasn’t done enough yet.”
