Arsene Wenger fires back at fans who want him sacked

65 year-old Wenger tells fans that he is going nowhere, insisting that he is a good manager

Arsenal’s recent form has turned some fans of the club against the French manager. Arsene Wenger who has been in charge of the team since 1996

Even the club’s second highest shareholder questioned Wenger’s tactical efficiency after the loss to Man United and he got a response from the economist

Arsenal on Saturday beat West Bromwich Albion 1-0, but the fans were still not appeased by that victory, insisting that Wenger must go.

He is not to be a strong talker but the Frenchman has learnt to speak out, recently firing fans asking for his dismissal. At half time, some Arsenal supporters held a banner which read: “Arsene, thanks for the memories but it is time to say goodbye,”  and Wenger responded, saying that he is going nowhere

"I can do my job," the 65-year-old told reporters. "I do my job with total commitment, I would like people to live with me and see for seven days what kind of work we produce, and you will see that it is total commitment."I do what I love, but I think I do it with honesty and total commitment."

"We’ve had ups and downs in the league - yes, it’s true, but you only come back again when the spirit is strong and healthy and united inside the club.

"And I think if you have shown such a consistency, it’s because we have that at the club. We have values and we respect them."

Arsenal followed the 1-2 defeat to United with a 2-0 win over Borussia Dortmund in the UEFA Champions League and the 0-1 win over West Brom at the Hawthorns.

They are currently 6th on the EPL table on 20 points, 13 behind leaders Chelsea after 13 games.
