Cape Town - Arsenal
forward Alex Iwobi has urged the club's supporters to respect manager
Arsene Wenger, calling the Gunners faithful "impatient".
Wenger, who has managed the London club for more than 20 years but is
out of contract at the end of this season, has seen calls for him to
step down intensify recently as the team's results have taken a downward
turn as the they find themselves out of the top four in the league and
out of the Champions League.
The Frenchman has said that he has already made his decision, with
reports suggesting that he will sign a new deal to stay on at the
Nigeria international Iwobi though says the players are just as frustrated as the fans.
Speaking to the Daily Mail, Iwobi said: "They need to have a bit more respect, in my opinion.
"I mean, he's been at the club for 20 years, he's achieved a lot,
obviously they're a bit impatient with the results and where they want
"We also want to finish there, we want to win the league like anyone else. I can guarantee we are trying our hardest.
"Whatever happens we are the players, we affect the result. We don't
really look at the banners or what fans are screaming, we focus on
trying to do our jobs on the pitch."
