'Arsenal wouldn't be Arsenal without Wenger', says Frimpong

Emmanuel Frimpong has heaped praise on Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger, insisting that he is the right man for the job despite a recent poor run of form.

The 19-year-old Ghanaian midfielder believes under-fire Wenger needs to be given ‘more time to put things right again’, claiming that ‘everyone at Arsenal is happy to have him here’.

French tactician Wenger has come in for criticism for the Gunners’ poor start to the season, which followed the sales of star midfielders Cesc Fabregas and Samir Nasri during the summer.

“Obviously this season hasn’t started that well, everyone knows that,” Frimpong told Soccer AM.

“But we’ve still got some quality players in the squad and hopefully we’ll turn things around.

“At the same time I think everyone is being a bit harsh on the manager. Everyone knows what he’s done for the game. He’s done a lot for Arsenal and Arsenal wouldn’t be Arsenal today if it wasn’t for him in my opinion.

“So I just think that everyone needs to calm down and give him time to put things right again. He’s a nice man and everyone at Arsenal is happy to have him there.”

Frimpong’s quotes come shortly after the news that a minority of Arsenal fans have organised a protest with an anti-Wenger banner before Sunday’s game against Sunderland.

Every young player talks Arsene up because no matter how poor they are they will play at AFC because of the low standards of Arsene Wegner. Shut up Frim and concentrate on playing 45 proper minutes.

I support Arsenal Football Club not Arsene Wegner, he has been awful for the last 7 years. He is getting away with murder, no other club in the world would allow him to carry on the way he is doing at AFC, this is history…..

I agree with jimmy. Some Arsenal fans (a minority, I hope) have lost all sense of perspective. It is true that the season has started off less than ideally and the defence department has given us lots to worry BUT we are not in crisis and we are not relegation material as some dramatic fans would have us believe. In fact,there are real reasons for us to be optimistic: 1. We are still in the early stage of the season. Yes, everyone knows the defence is worrying, so does Arsene but we DO have a strong and talented squad of… Read more »

Contrary to this clown’s belief, there was an Arsenal before Wenger. Emmanuel should shut up and concentrate on not getting sent off again.

In Arsene we rust.

All the kids have to sing Wenger’s praises.They are beholden to him.However I beleive as do many many fans he has lost his way.He still plays in the same style ie kami kaze attack with no goals to show inspite of the one thousand chances created. And when the opposition scores ,he is at a loss as to how the gunners can’t score.It’s like US forces conducting a search and destroy operation.Enemy has been eliminated but sudenly the Telebam strikes back with a vengeance and many GIs die. Sunderland won’t be a roll over. They will be all out to… Read more »

Do Arsenal Board have money for Arsene? We have American crap running AFC like enterprise…Guys, open your eyes, you barking at the wrong tree.

Former Arsenal boss says;
No one from the club has said we have enough money for Arsene to buy whoever he wants. I’m not talking about a £10m player, I’m talking about players of real quality, those costing £30m to make a big difference.

At this moment all Arsenal supporter should stick together and support our team and also Wenger.

@Bullett:

what are you talking about?? based on youth, our carling cup teams consistantly look younger and stronger than most other clubs.

Another band-wagon-jumping comment by people who have their glass always half-empty.

if you want a constant supply of glory support United/barca or whoever is currently winning and when they start losing claim to be a neutral
