WENGER FED UP WITH PROTEST TALKS
Arsene Wenger was in no mood to discuss fan protests against him as Arsenal prepare to take on West Brom on Saturday.
The Frenchman has received heavy criticism in recent weeks following Arsenal’s Champions League demolition at the hands of Bayern Munich as well as underwhelming Premier League showings that have left them five points adrift of the top four.
Fans held a protest calling for his departure ahead of last week’s FA Cup win over Lincoln, but Wenger has yet to make a decision about his future at Arsenal, with his existing deal due to expire at the end of the season.
Wenger has previously acknowledged the fans’ opinion does matter to him, but gave the topic of protests short shrift at Thursday’s media conference.
“I have nothing to say about that anymore,” a frustrated Wenger stated. “I have talked enough about that.
“It has been a positive week. I know that when you do not win you do not have a happy week.
“Nothing is good enough any more. You try to do as well as you can. Success is not down to me to judge, I will leave that to the media.
“Our job is to do as well as we can, to qualify for the Champions League. It is a tough job because we have six teams fighting for four places. We are in the semi-final of the cup so we have a good chance to win that.”
