Arsene Wenger: I’m immune to excessive reaction

Following crushing defeats to Everton and Manchester City, Arsene Wenger has once again received heavy amounts of criticism. Arsenal are now nine points behind League leaders and seemingly going through their annual title capitulation. Amid this criticism, however, Arsene Wenger insist this will not affect him and the club’s attempt to get their title challenge back on track, as reported by Goal.com

In his twentieth year of management ar Arsenal, Wenger has learned to live with the constant criticism and poor slumps of form.

‘I am not immune to critics. But I am immune to excessive reaction. I have been in the job long enough to put that into perspective as part of people who love the club that are really disappointed on Monday morning and get their frustration out. We have to live with that.’

‘You know you do not go in the season and have no disappointment. We have just lost two games, of course it is tough but City did not win for six, Tottenham for four or five, Manchester United as well, all the teams go through that.’ 

‘The teams who respond well have the most successful seasons. It is part of it. In 20 years I had very few seasons where you start on the motorway and you finish on the motorway with no car in front of you.’
