Serge Gnabry still has ‘huge respect’ for Arsene Wenger and believes that the manager should remain in charge of Arsenal.
- Gnabry signed for Arsenal in 2011
- Youngster made 18 senior appearances in total, 38 for u23s
- Spent 2015-16 on loan at West Brom, only played 137 minutes
- Left in 2016 for regular first team football
- Still respects Wenger hugely for giving him a chance
Gnabry is quickly developing into the player Wenger always knew he was supposed to be.
After choosing to sign for Werder Bremen in August 2016 instead of staying at Arsenal, the winger began getting the consistent game time he’d always craved.
While under Wenger, despite the boss’ faith in him, injury woes combined with lack of overall fitness had impacted Gnabry’s career with the Gunners and he decided to try his luck elsewhere.
The German international has now scored 11 goals in 25 Bundesliga appearances (two assists) and Werder Bremen are eighth in the table compared to 13th last season.
Speaking recently, the 21-year-old revealed that he believes that Wenger should stay at Arsenal despite the Gunners’ poor season.
“Yeah, of course (he should stay in charge),” Gnabry told The Set Pieces.
“He was the one that gave me a chance. I have deep respect for him and I wish him all the best.”
