Premier League News: Arsene Wenger responds to his critics following defeat against Manchester City

Arsene Wenger is certainly not accepting the criticism but his days at Arsenal are now numbered.


Following Arsenal’s 3-0 defeat to Manchester City in the Carabao Cup final on this past Sunday, manager Arsene Wenger has seemingly claimed that he is not worried about his future with the club and is currently focused on his team’s upcoming match against Manchester City on this Thursday night.

In a recent interview, Wenger said that worrying about his current position with The Gunners is the least of his worries and he is instead looking forward to prepare and get his team ready for the next match instead.

Wenger has been in charge of Arsenal for the past two decades and the French boss agreed to a new two-year contract at the end of last season and as of right now, Wenger is unaware of what the future holds for him at the Emirates.

“We are in that kind of situation where you want to focus on the next game. I don’t ask if your position is reviewed at the end of the season.”- Wenger stated.

Additionally, Wenger was also asked if he could guarantee that he will still be in charge next season, to which he replied: “Will it stop you sleeping, that my position might not be certain or is certain? No.”

Furthermore, Wenger also noted that criticism in football is a big part of the game and something that you have to live within the modern era of the game. Wenger believes that what’s more important to him is to analyse and respond to this criticism, together in a united way.
