Arsene Wenger Insists He Doesn’t Fear The Sack Despite Poor Start To The Season

Pressure on the Arsenal manager is beginning to mount following a disappointing summer where the Gunners have failed to sign any of their main transfer targets.

Check in to Transfer Window: Done Deal Alerts

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger isn’t worried about losing his job despite his sides poor performance in their 3-1 defeat to Aston Villa on the opening day of the Premier League season, Goal.com reports.

The result prompted a huge amount of anger from Arsenal fans who booed the team off at the final whistle and urged Wenger to sign some quality players before the transfer window ends.

Arsenal haven’t won any silverware since 2005 and although his side haven’t started off the season well, Wenger still believes that he is the best person to take Arsenal forward and he highlighted the loyalty he has shown  the club as a reason for fans to be patient.

“We live in a media world and everybody has opinions that are definite and I have to live with that,” Wenger told the press.

“In 16 years, I’ve shown my loyalty to this club. My worry is to do well. That’s the only worry.

“As long as I’m here, I want to do well. I’m absolutely hugely disappointed because we’ve come out of a 10-game run in the last season without any defeat and we start the new season with a defeat at home”.

Arsenal fans are growing increasingly frustrated at the clubs lack of activity in the transfer market, with Wenger failing to secure any of his main targets so far this summer.

His main target, Luis Suarez, looks set to stay at Liverpool while the likes of Gonzalo Higuain and Luiz Gustavo have moved to different clubs.
