Arsenal January signings,Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, have insisted the Gunners squad are fully behind embattled manager, Arsene Wenger.
Wenger has come under increased pressure following Arsenal’s 3-0 defeat to Manchester City in the Carabao Cup final.
Arsenal are currently sixth in the Premier League table on 45 points, and are in danger of missing out on Champions League qualification for the second season running.
Arsenal host Man City tonight (Thursday) night at The Emirates amid reports of a dressing room revolt against Wenger.
But the Gunners’ new signings have dismissed such claims and have vowed to show they are playing for the long serving manager.
“It is a pleasure to work with him. Of course, it is not very easy for him,” Mkhitaryan, who is set to return against City, told Sky Sports.
“But we have to play for the club, for him, because he is a big role model for this team, a big person at this club, so we have to show we are ready to fight for him.
“It’s not the easiest time for the club, but we are here to help, do our best, and put Arsenal on the level that it was before. I know it’s not going to be easy, but we’re trying, and doing our best.”
Aubameyang added: “He is a great manager, everyone knows it.
“It is not an easy moment but we have to give our best to show him that we play for him and give everything for him.”
