Arsenal fans may not want to be believe it but it looks like things could even worse this season. Arsene Wenger’s side have now lost five out of their seven Premier League matches and three in the last week, with the daunting prospect of facing AC Milan next Thursday.
Wenger’s face told the entire story, as the old Frenchman genuinely looked lost and helpless on the pitch. The legendary manager looked quote forlorn in the post match interview and press conference as questions were once again raised about his future.
“It’s the first time it happens in my whole career, I must say,” he told Sky Sports.
“It’s not easy, but I have enough experience and enough desire to turn things around and I must say that, at the moment, when you need to stay in the game we are making a few mistakes at the wrong moments.
“We have to stick together and focus. We have no other solution.”
“You focus on your job. These are always the questions you get when you are in the situation we are in.
“You do your job and you do the right thing and the things you think are right for the team and that’s it.”
“Yes, I think that [fourth place] had already gone,” he added.
“Mathematically, with five teams in front of us, you need two to collapse. With such a number of games to go it’s very difficult to think it will happen.”
“I can understand the frustration,” he said when asked if the chants upset him.
“The League Cup in the middle of the season, it’s always difficult.
“The final we lost brings a lot of negativity. On top of that the game on Thursday night didn’t help us today.”
Things could become even worse if Arsenal lose to AC Milan in the next few days. Imagine that Gooners!
