Under-fire €50m Arsenal star wants to stay at Emirates

Under-fire €50m Arsenal star wants to stay at Emirates

Arsenal star Alex Iwobi has urged fans of the club to have more respect for Arsene Wenger, revealing that the players are behind the manager.

Wenger has now sparked fresh transfer speculation after making it clear he's still a huge fan of the 25-year-old after name-checking Lacazette when speaking about the strength of the current French squad.

Wenger has been under huge pressure at Arsenal following their annual Champions League and Premier League title collapse.

"I can talk to Arsene Wenger every morning but now he needs to put some stability on the club".

As a result, Henry departed Arsenal and is now assistant coach to Roberto Martinez with the Belgian national team. I have a lot of respect for everything the coach has done.

"Overall I think he got rid of all the rest and rightly so and he deserved to be punished before and now you don't even expect it anymore from him."?

The veteran manager who has been at Arsenal since 1996 has leaped to the defence of his record, stressing that he has helped build "the best club in the world".

The Frenchman is understood to be mulling over his future, having previously agreed terms on a two-year extension to his 21-year tenure in north London, amid a fierce backlash over recent results. Am I ready? I don't know and nobody knows, but I also need to learn my job.

"He always backs our players and he is a great man".

The Frenchman, whose contract expires at the end of the season, is yet to announce whether he will continue as Arsenal boss, having spent nearly 21 years in charge of the Gunners.

Wenger was also asked about Suarez' behaviour on the field, and infamously short temper.

"I hope even they [Ozil and Sanchez] extend the contracts - the negotiation is very hard and maybe complicated, but most important is to see Arsene Wenger extend", Pires said to Sky Sports.

Henry is enjoying his time with Belgium, and is still unsure if he wants to take one of the game's big jobs.
