Tomas Rosicky admits Arsenal need to “win back” the support of Arsenal fans again following the Gunners’ dramatic slump in form.

Arsenal’s miserable run continued as they were beaten 2-1 at Olympiakos on Tuesday to finish second in their Champions League group behind Schalke.

Arsène Wenger’s men have only won one of their last six Premier League games and the midfielder, who netted the opener in Athens on Tuesday, says he can understand the frustrations of supporters after the Gunners were booed off following their home loss to Swansea on Saturday.

But the 32-year-old says the Gunners must all “stick together” ahead of Saturday’s clash against West Bromwich at Emirates Stadium.

“I can understand the frustrations, I am an Arsenal fan as well when I am not playing,” Rosicky told the Independent. “It is understandable but we have some young guys and this is not helping.

“We have to all stick together, which is what we did last season when everyone was writing us off. We have to win the people again, that is the challenge. It will be difficult but we are capable of doing it again.

“If we are all on board, Arsenal is a great place to play football.”
