Gunners boos pleased with his players.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger hailed his squad of ‘special’ players after they recovered from a rocky start to pip local rivals Tottenham to secure Champions League football next term, talkSPORT reports.
The gunners looked in danger of losing out on a place in Europe’s top club football tournament, which would have been the first time they had missed out on qualifying for the event, but a late rally saw them claim their spot to keep the fans happy.
Wenger also saw his position as manager heavily questioned over the course of the season but he has managed to buy himself a little more time by finishing fourth and is now expected to be active in a busy transfer window as the club still seek to end their silverware drought but he took time out to praise his players for the fine form they’ve shown.
“The determination, the attitude, the focus they have shown is exceptional even when we were seven points behind,” he said.
Wenger said he did occasionally doubt whether Arsenal would make the cut for Europe’s top table. It’s your job to deal with pressure with stress and focus and think on what’s important for you and the club.”
“We would all prefer if people say we’re great but you have to go through thick and thin.”
