Koscielny reckons Arsene is still the man!
All Arsenal fans have their own opinion on whether Arsene Wenger should remain at the helm of Arsenal football club, and whilst the jury may not be out just yet, it seems the players are united in their decision.
Speaking to the media, Koscielny was keen to state that although the club has had it’s struggles, the players are fully behind Arsene Wenger to lead the club forward for at least another year.
Koscielny said: “The boss has seen it all, he’s been for many years at the club. I think we owe him a lot. At least, I owe him very much, I have a lot of respect for the coach, but as well for the man. He’s a very nice guy. I understand the frustration of the fans because we did not win the title for a long time, but I think that Arsene did some amazing things in this club.
“He helped it grow, now we have a beautiful stadium, our facilities are unbelievable… it’s up to us, the players, to do what’s necessary on the pitch to win these titles. But I think that Arsene is a very good coach, and he’s still the man for the job.”
Although many may feel differently about Wenger, I feel that one thing that cannot be argued is the success he has brought to the club, both in terms of honours and financial success. It’s good to see that the players are still fully behind their manager, because as we have all seen, a manager-player feud usually only ends badly. Take Mourinho’s latest spell at Chelsea for example.
Wenger is in his 20th season with the Gunners now and although more recent years (aside from two FA CUPS) haven’t brought the same sort of success, Wenger has stabilised this club financially for both current day and in the long run. I still have faith in the Frenchman, despite some concerns, and I genuinely believe that when Wenger has realised he cannot take this club any further, then he will step down as Arsenal’s manager.
