Arsenal’s controversial coach, Arsene Wenger is not making a big deal out of the crisis happening to the football club but believes the fans are simply overreacting because they have been “brainwashed” by pundits.
Goal reports that Arsene Wenger, whose side suffered an humiliating Champions League defeat at the hands of Bayern Munich, says events of the past week have reminded him why he must keep an objective view on criticisms.
“I watch many games,” said Wenger. “For example on Friday night I watched the last 20 minutes of Paris Saint-Germain against Barcelona again.
“It is interesting once you see all the conclusions that come out of the game. The same people that speak after the game said with 10 minutes to go that PSG were absolutely outstanding and 10 minutes later they were absolutely rubbish. It is always interesting to take a distance, because people keep your eye and brainwash you with what you think is right.
“We are in the semi-final of the FA Cup. How many times have we been? You have to accept that nothing is good enough, you have to live with that.
“Get out of that heated atmosphere and look at things in an objective way. Sometimes it confirms what people say. Sometimes it doesn’t.”
Arsenal got a mild consolation and advanced to the FA Cup semis on Saturday and further said, “It is down to me to take the right distance – people are right and people are wrong as well. I managed about 2,000 games and might know a little something about the game as well.
“No matter what happens in the future you will always lose games. I can’t guarantee we will win all the games.”
“You cannot live in an isolated world, because when you are a football player, even if you don’t read, people tell you what people say.
“The importance of the game has become bigger. You can’t escape any more. No matter where a player goes today it is talked about. You have so many news channels,” he said.
Arsene Wenger’s contract with the Gunners comes to an end and has been given until the next international break to decide on his future with the football club.
