The Gunners boss has been under significant pressure for some time now and last weekend’s 3-1 defeat to Chelsea seemed to irk fans even more, with the result throwing Wenger’s long-term future into more doubt.
And ahead of Saturday’s mist-win game at home to Hull City this weekend, Wenger has had his say on the furore and it’s fair to say some loyal Gooners probably won’t like what he had to say.
Speaking via Sky Sports, the Frenchman said: “Of course, our fans have been consistent and have a high level of expectation, as I have as well.
“But I don’t feel it is absolutely clear.
“You cannot be a fan until last Tuesday and not be a fan anymore and not be behind the team this Saturday. It doesn’t make sense.
“All the other clubs, everywhere we fight with – Man United, Man City, Liverpool… they have big expectations as well and big histories.
“We are in a fight there, we absolutely have to be united or we have no chance to do it.
“You have Tottenham, everyone is in the fight and everyone is behind their team. We have to do exactly the same, even if we had two disappointing results.”
Arsenal go into the fixture a whopping 12 points behind leaders Chelsea and are probably more concerned with holding onto a top-four finish rather than winning their first top-flight title since 2004.
