Most Arsenal fans are still behind Arsene Wenger, claims Liam Brady
Arsenal director of youth Liam Brady believes that the "majority" of Gunners fans are still backing Arsene Wenger despite poor form
Liam Brady believes that the “majority” of Arsenal fans are still backing Arsene Wenger as the right man to lead the Gunners despite their turbulent season.
Sunday’s damaging north London derby defeat by Tottenham dealt the Gunners’ hopes of Champions League qualification a serious blow as their local rivals opened up a seven-point lead over Wenger’s men.
Arsenal remain in fifth place in Premier League table with 10 games to go as the race for a top-four finish begins to hot up.
But Arsenal director of youth Brady does not believe there is any additional pressure on the Frenchman despite a rocky few weeks in which they have crashed out of the FA Cup and suffered a 3-1 home defeat by Bayern Munich in the Champions League.
“I hope that Arsene is given the resources to spend and have a go at putting us back where we were eight years ago,” said Brady.
“I think he should be given that chance and, from where I am in the club, I don’t think there’s any pressure on him – I think the board are 100 per cent behind him.
“When you get beat by your neighbours it can get a lot of people talking, particularly people ringing up radio stations and things like that. But I think we’ve got to keep it all in perspective.
“The majority of the fans are behind him, the staff are behind him and I think the board are behind him. So we wait to see what the future brings.”
