Rwanda’s President Paul Kagame on Saturday blasted Arsenal after they opened the Premier League season with a loss to new leaguer comers Brentford, saying Gunners fans deserve better than “mediocrity”.
We just must NOT excuse or Accept mediocrity. A team has to be built with purpose to win win win. So that when we lose….it was not to be expected! I am sure we all know on whose shoulders the heaviest burden rests. I hope they know too or even accept it!!! End

President Kagame tweeted a tirade after Brentford returned to their first Premier League Season in 74 years with a 2-0 win over the Gunners on Friday evening.
Kagame, whose country is an official sponsor of Arsenal, said Brentford deserved the win but the Gunners have to figure it out.
Rwanda became the official tourism partner of Arsenal in 2018, with players sporting a “Visit Rwanda” logo on their shirt sleeves during matches.
The three-year deal was aimed at drawing tourists and investors to the Rwanda.
