Wenger vows to continue despite ‘Wenger out’ chants

Arsene Wenger admits he understands fans’ frustration but has promised to fight on following Arsenal’s 2-1 defeat to Brighton.

The Gunners lost their eighth game since the turn of the year and tenth in the Premier League this season.

Goals from Lewis Dunk and Glenn Murray sunk Wenger’s side, inflicting Arsenal’s third defeat on the spin in all competitions.

Fans expressed their anger towards Wenger in the away end at the Amex today with choruses of ‘We want Wenger out’.


Despite Arsenal’s hopeless form, Wenger has vowed to continue as manager.

“It’s the first time it happens in my whole career, I must say,” he told Sky Sports.

“It’s not easy, but I have enough experience and enough desire to turn things around and I must say that, at the moment, when you need to stay in the game we are making a few mistakes at the wrong moments.

“We have to stick together and focus. We have no other solution.”

He also denied he was contemplating resigning, adding: “You focus on your job. These are always the questions you get when you are in the situation we are in.

“You do your job and you do the right thing and the things you think are right for the team and that’s it.”

The defeat was Arsenal’s first to the Premier League new boys since 1982. It was also Brighton’s first points taken from a top six side this season.
