Arsene Wenger believes it would be ‘absolutely stupid’ for Arsenal to give up on the title after just three games this season.
Wenger has apologised for the Gunners’ poor showing so far this season but claims it would be ‘absolutely stupid’ for Arsenal to give up on the Premier League title so soon in the campaign.
“People make their minds up very quickly and you forget how good you are—much quicker than you think. We must continue to believe in our strengths and not to forget,” the boss said, reports Bleacherreport.
“And ours fans as well, to have a successful season we need our fans. … We want our fans to be behind us in this moment even if we are very sorry for what we delivered but to have a successful team we need to have that. … It would be absolutely stupid to say today that we give up in the race for the championship.”
Wenger’s in a tough position because no matter what he says, Gooners are going to roll their eyes.
The 4-0 loss against Liverpool and previous 1-0 defeat away to Stoke weren’t just one or two bad results, they’re a couple more added to a long list of humiliating results over the past decade.
When you get shown up as much as Arsenal do, excuses and apologises from the manager and players tend to just go in one ear and out the other, since you’ve heard them all before numerous times.
Therefore, on Saturday, actions will definitely speak louder than words against Bournemouth.
Arsenal need a comfortable, professional win at the Emirates in order to prove that they actually mean business because, at the moment, most fans are feeling completely apathy towards the club.
Apathy is worse than anger because it means that fans are too tired to care.
It’s up to the team and manager to change that.
