Jack Wilshere insists Arsene Wenger is the “right man” to lead Arsenal after a difficult few weeks for the Gunners.

Wenger’s position has come under increasing scrutiny following a run of just two wins in seven Premier League outings, and last week’s shock Capital One Cup exit at the hands of League Two Bradford City.

Arsenal are currently eighth in the Premier League table but a win at Reading on Monday night will hoist the north Londoners into fifth place.

Wilshere is convinced the club is in the right hands under the Frenchman and says his record speaks for itself.

“For me, there is no question he is the right man. You cannot start questioning him because we have had a few bad results. The players have to look at themselves,” Wilshere said.

“Every year he has been in the Champions League and there is no other manager who has done that. He has built a legacy at this club. He changed everything from when he came in 15-16 years ago. He brought the Total Football, if you like, to Arsenal – the passing game.

“He has also been great for me, has shown great faith in me from when I was young. He stuck with me when I was injured and has still stuck by me.”
