Mathieu Flamini sends message to Arsenal fans
Mathieu Flamini admits that he fully understands Arsenal fans' frustrations after the club's poor form in recent weeks
Mathieu Flamini has admitted that he understands Arsenal fans’ frustrations this season.
The Gunners have been in dismal form in recent weeks and slumped to a 3-0 loss to Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park on Monday night to further damage their hopes of finishing in the top four this season.
Indeed, Arsenal have now won just two of their last eight Premier League games to leave them facing a serious uphill battle in trying to qualify for next season’s Champions League.
Flamini played under Wenger at Arsenal and the French midfielder admits that he can fully understand the supporters’ frustrations.
Speaking to Sky Sports, Flamini said: “I understand also the frustration of the fans because they are such a big club and they want their team winning and it is not an easy situation.
“It is difficult for me to comment from the outside what is happening with Arsenal. Results are not what they want, that is for sure. But they have a lot of quality.”
Arsenal will look to return to winning ways in the Premier League when they take on Middlesbrough in their next top-flight game on Monday night.
The north London side are currently sixth in the Premier League table and seven points behind fourth-placed Manchester City. The Gunners have eight games left to play this season.
