Arsenal must not sack Wenger, warns Seaman

Arsenal must retain boss Arsene Wenger or risk suffering the same problems thatManchester United experienced following Sir Alex Ferguson’s exit, says David Seaman.

Wenger has come under scrutiny after his side crashed out of the Champions League and FA Cup, while also falling behind Leicester City and Tottenham in Premier League title race.

However, Seaman believes the 66-year-old coach is still the right man for the job at the Emirates and backed him to lead a review on what has gone wrong this season.

“I’m so fed up of all this negative stuff about Arsenal. A change at the top? Not for me. I’m a massive fan of Arsene,” Seaman was quoted as saying by The Mirror.

“Let’s see what happens at the end of this season. Let’s see what’s gone wrong and then sort it out.

“But, for me, he’s been brilliant. I worked with him for about seven or eight years and he was fantastic. I would stick by Arsene. I’ve always said that and I haven’t reason to change my mind.

“Look at Manchester United. Look at what has happened to them. They lost a great manager in Alex Ferguson. He retired. It’s always greener on the other side.

“Arsene has a great record, but he’s always under pressure. He’ll be under pressure until we win the league.

“It’s frustrating for Arsenal fans. I can understand that. I get frustrated at times. But we shouldn’t be negative about it. We should try to stay positive.”
