Wenger Responds To Critics

By on September 22, 2011

Arsene Wenger was in a defiant mood after suggestions his position as Arsenal boss is under threat.

Wenger has come under intense scrutiny from some critics, with the Gunners suffering their worst start to a league season in over 50 years. The Frenchman said:

“I am not bothered at all by this speculation. I am completely focused on doing well.”

“I can understand that people are unhappy and criticise, but you know as well as I know people are very quick to go overboard.

“I accept critics and I do not say it doesn’t matter that people criticise us, and like anybody else, I prefer it when they say I am good.

“When we do well we take all the plaudits, so we have to take as well all the blame when it doesn’t go as well – but we have as well on both sides to take some distance.

“When it goes well we must not completely believe what people say and when it does not go as well, we must not completely believe it.”

“I have just managed 14 years at this club and I have kept them 14 years in the Champions League and I hope it lasts another 14 years.”

    Arsenal need 4-4-2.D fans are 1,coach is 1,players are 1&board being 1.Bt so unfortunat dat most times we are either 2-2-4(reason for dfensiv flop)or 3-3-2(reason for our top 4 finish)or 4-3-2(lack of winin mentalty/leadership,physîcal absence).Dis ard d 5 reasons why wenger shuld stay or leave:(a)the 4 parties to the succes of d team lacks ambtion,no club has underwent arsenal scourge in terms of finance&project to survive,no coaç will work with wengers material and cries for trophies,wenger’s policy works better with d xter of stingy ppl in our board/can anybody xplain d relatioship btw wenger&d board,wenger has indirectly changes european footbal in terms of teenage chances&style of play(b)wengers player are not far frm ferg’s side bt why dis mess?,wengers early days wit monaco&japanese side was gud bt ended his career with sorow,a gud manager must b able 2 use any player at his dsposal&can as well b suceptible to technical changes in footbol,wengers playin statistics wit top european managers is far from best.

    Where has the word “respect” gone to for God’s sake? How could Ibrahim and Pabire use such invectives against Wenger? If you judge him over all, he has done more for Arsenal than any person in history and still has much more to offer. If you check them out you would find that these disrespectful and abusive guys are some young guys who do not qualify to be employed to wipe Wenger’s shoes.
