Emirates boss receives the vote of confidence.
Arsenal chief executive Ivan Gazidis has issued his support to manager Arsene Wenger by insisting the Frenchman will not sacked.
The Gunners have lost three of their opening five Premier League matches – the worst start to a season since 1953.
Wenger, who has been in charge of Arsenal since 1996, has not won a trophy since the 2005 FA Cup and last lifted the Premier League title in 2004.
Following the 8-2 humiliation by Manchester United, a disastrous 4-3 defeat to Blackburn and a severe lack of transfer activity, fans are beginning to question the future of Wenger at the Emirates.
But Gazidis says that firing Wenger is “a route we are not going to go down” and has backed the boss to turn the team’s fortunes around.
The chief exec said having critics and fans portray Wenger “as some kind of idiot” is damaging for football.
Speaking at the Sport Industry Breakfast Club in London, Gazidis says Wenger “is not broken … he did not suddenly become a bad manager or somebody who became out of touch with the game. It is complete nonsense.”
