Iwobi: Arsenal Players Are Behind Wenger


Arsenal's Nigerian forward, Alex Iwobi, has stated in clear terms that The Gunners' players are solidly behind  manager, Arsene Wenger who is facing intense pressure to leave the club.


The 21 year old also urged The Gunner' fans to show more respect to the Frenchman who is on the verge of signing a new deal at the club.


Iwobi revealed after Nigeria's 1-1 draw with Senegal in London on Thursday that the players having been trying a lot to improve from their lethargic performance on the pitch and don't really care about the banners that angry fans display in the stands at the Emirates stadium campaigning that Wenger should quit the club.


"They need to have a bit more respect in my opinion," Iwobi told the Daily Mail.


"I mean, he's been at the club for 20 years, he's achieved a lot, obviously they're a bit impatient with the results and where they want to finish.


"We also want to finish there, we want to win the league like anyone else, I can guarantee we are trying our hardest.


"Whatever happens we are the players, we affect the result. We don't really look at the banners or what fans are screaming, we focus on trying to do our jobs on the pitch."


Arsenal are six points adrift of fourth-placed Liverpool, but have two games in hand. They face Manchester City after the international break at the Emirates Stadium.


The Gunners still have to come up against some of their closest rivals before the end of this season, with Tottenham, Manchester United and Everton games still to be played
