Kolo Toure has backed Arsene Wenger to turn things around at Arsenal this season.

The Frenchman has already found himself under plenty of pressure this term after his team lost two of their opening three Premier League games to leave them 16th in the table.

Arsenal were thrashed 4-0 by Liverpool in their most recent Premier League outing, a defeat which came just days after their 1-0 loss to Stoke City.

Wenger is aiming to guide Arsenal to their first Premier League title triumph since their famous unbeaten triumph in the 2003-04 campaign, when Toure was still playing for the Gunners.

And although the former Ivory Coast international admits that the pressure is firmly on Wenger, he is backing his former boss to turn things around at The Emirates.

Toure is quoted as saying by the Daily Star: “It’s a tough situation because Arsenal haven’t won the league for a long time now, even though they’ve won the FA Cup a few times.

“There’s a lot of pressure on Mr. Wenger but, the thing is, Mr. Wenger loves Arsenal.

“He’s done amazing for the club. He’s working with his heart. He’s been there so long and, for me, when I was there, we worked very well and won the league.

“That was the best time. Right now it’s tough but Mr. Wenger is a fighter.”

Arsenal return to Premier League action on Saturday with a home clash against Bournemouth at The Emirates.

The Gunners won the FA Cup but finished fifth in the Premier League last season.
