Cape Town - Arsenal full-back Hector Bellerin insists all the players are behind under-pressure manager Arsene Wenger, despite the club's poor run of form. 

The Gunners crashed out of the Champions League on Tuesday, losing 10-2 on aggregate to Bayern Munich after a 5-1 defeat at home in the second leg.

Three defeats in four Premier League games has also seen them fall out of the top four, but Bellerin still believes Wenger is the right man to take the team forward.

"Of course," Bellerin told the press when asked whether he wanted Wenger in charge next season. "It's as simple as that, especially for me. He's the one who gave me my chance since day one.

"We all back him and of course we want him to stay. The whole team is behind the manager.

"He's played a big part in making me the player that I am, and there are loads of players in the dressing room who will be in the same position as me."
