'Disgraceful, no respect, attention seekers': Beckham slams #AFC fans calling Wenger to go https://t.co/ejvwUuksMx https://t.co/VyB6Za7TSV

Make no mistake—the comments section of an Arsenal fan's Instagram post is not the most common place for David Beckham to express his footballing opinion, but the former England international appears to have done just that.

The ex-Manchester United, Real Madrid, LA Galaxy and Paris Saint-Germain midfielder seems to have weighed in on the never-ending debate over Arsene Wenger's future in north London on Monday.

Says the world's greatest living attention-seeker. Shut it, Mr Beckham. https://t.co/ZMZGsjRAmQ

A fairly innocuous comment on a photograph of the now-famous "time to say goodbye" banner at the Emirates linked back to the 40-year-old's official Instagram account that read: "Disgraceful, No respect attention seekers."

And it caught the eye of the British media and no less an individual than Arsenal superfan and self-proclaimed champion of the #WengerOut movement, Piers Morgan:

Hmmm, methinks everything the Beckhams do is primarily designed to promote Brand Beckham... https://t.co/TeApjpMN0t

The 50-year-old television personality took aim at Beckham in a series of Twitter posts criticising his life in the public eye:

Correct, or jumped on their backs. https://t.co/7oVvAskw2C

The first time I called for Wenger to go, on November 24, 2008. What's changed? https://t.co/OY140tNuZw

And mixed in among it all were the usual calls for Wenger to resign as boss at the Emirates:

Whatever, Kanye-angelo. Now tweet #WengerOut, that's an order. https://t.co/iTTd5mnjJp

DEFINITION OF A FARCE: Blaming the fact you haven't won PL for 11yrs on money limitations. Then Leicester win it. #WengerOUT

Piers Morgan @piersmorgan

Now THIS is a farce. https://t.co/9Vl87vuN5e

Wenger's next opportunity to prove himself to the Arsenal faithful is against Barcelona in the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday, where the Gunners have a 2-0 first-leg deficit to overcome at the Camp Nou.

Perhaps keep an eye on Morgan's Twitter feed on Thursday morning...
