Arsene Wenger begs fans to be faithful

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has urged fans to stay ‘united’ after admitting he understands the ‘fear and discontent’ amongst the club’s supporters.
Wenger sent out a defiant message when speaking at the Gunners’ AGM on Thursday following the club’s unimpressive start to the season.

Key midfielder pair Cesc Fabregas and Samir Nasri left the club in the summer, whilst Wenger’s side suffered a shocking 8-2 thumping by Manchester United at the end of August.
However the Gunners seem to be turning things around following an uncharacteristic signings spree before the transfer deadline, which has resulted in Wenger’s squad and results improving in recent weeks.

Despite being a long-term server of the club, the Frenchman had his position questioned by some during the slump; whilst fans have also lost faith in their manager.

“I believe the values we defend are highly defendable,” said Wenger.

“We want to do things with class and be very brave. Courage is a quality I admire, because it is highly needed in the modern world.
“I can see a lot of fear and discontent among you – and I can understand that because we live in a world where we fight with people who have extremely high resources.

Wenger added, “We can compete by trying to be intelligent and to be united, because football is very difficult to be consistent and we have been more consistent than anybody in the world in the last 15 years.

“To stay at the top, top level we have to stay united.
“That does not mean I am not to be criticised, or the board – we accept that, but we have to show to the outside we are united. If you are not, then you have no chance.”
