It seems as everything is slowly falling apart at Arsenal.

Arsene Wenger's 20-year reign in north London is likely to come to an end at the end of the season following a Champions League capitulation and many of the Gunners stars are set to following him out of the club.

Mesut Ozil, who threw his Arsenal future on the likelihood of Wenger signing a new deal at the Emirates, is now looking increasingly likely to depart in the summer, as does Alexis Sanchez.

The Chilean was granted leave by the Gunners following Bayern's 5-1 hammering of the Premier League club, reigniting speculation of a move to Inter as he opted to break in Italy.

It will be music to a certain groups' ears, as a team of thousands in his homeland of Chile have had enough of their star man wasting his efforts at Arsenal.

Thousands of Chileans have organised a march in protest of Alexis continuing his playing days in the English capital, with the revolt set to take place on March 1.

A statement on the group's Facebook page reads: "We, as Chileans are tired to watch one of our biggest stars play on his own to make his team get through.

"We don't want him to play at Real Madrid, nor go back to Barcelona, we don't give a f*ck where he plays, we just want him to fight along with other 10 players to get the results.

"He doesn't deserve to be alone."
