Defender Laurent Koscielny says that Arsene Wenger is right man for the job at Arsenal despite the recent criticism – even from the club’s supporters – in recent weeks following a poor run of games.
Arsenal face the prospect of yet another season without a trophy. The club has enjoyed back-to-back successive FA Cup, but it is now the turn of a trophy less campaign. The club went through a similar time for almost a decade before the FA Cup success largely served to protect manager Wenger at the club. Just before the victories, there were calls for Wenger to step down from his role.
Now, those calls have once again come up. Koscielny may become the last of the defenders brought to Arsenal by Wenger. The Frenchman is not keen on becoming such a historical figure. He says that Wenger has done only good for Arsenal and it is imperative that he stays on at the club to enjoy the fruits of the labour. It has been more than a decade since the club last won the Premier League medal. Just when it seemed that they would end this drought this season, the club has gone backwards once again. This time around, Wenger cannot blame the lack of transfer money for his inability to bring trophies.
“He has been at the club for a while now, the banners are not something new for him.” he told the Yacht Chartering Croatia website. “He’s very calm. He knows what he has done for the club and the coach is still the man to help us, maybe with a little luck to win the championship.I can understand the frustration of the fans, having not won the championship for a long time. In any case, we try by all means each season to lift the trophy.However, everything is not under our control. The club has to deal with injuries, periods of poor form,” said Koscielny.
