Wenger is now alienating the Arsenal fans by JM
Arsene Wenger has done himself no favours with his latest outburst against the Arsenal fans who have been protesting about the results this season. He has made it clear that he thinks it is only a small minority of fans that are calling for him to be sacked, and even if there was a majority, they don’t have the power to remove him.
He was quoted in the Mirror as saying: “That is not my problem. My problem is to win football games. I am not a politician who has a poll every week to see if you support me. I am paid to win games. My sense is to focus on my job.
“Honestly you don’t think I will find 20 people who say that you are rubbish? Do they represent the majority of people? I don’t know but you have to win your football games, that’s all.”
He yet again defended his record since he joined Arsenal, and said the supporters should simply do what their name suggests: “What is in the word supporter? Support. It says what it says.
“I don’t expect anything but if you will look at the history of Arsenal and what we have achieved in the last 18 years and we have moved forward and that what is what we want to continue to do.
“I have managed in 180 Champions League games. How many Champions League games did Arsenal play before?”
Again that is not such a clever thing to say as it means you have played in the Champions League for 16 years in a row, but how many times have you won it? Arsenal once got to the final seven years ago, and perhaps even deserved to win it, but how many times have you got that close again? How is that progress? I rest my case!
