Arsene Wenger maintains he can “turn things around” at Arsenal and is refusing to contemplate quitting his post.
Calls for the Frenchman to walk away from a club that he has served for 22 years are mounting in intensity amid a sorry run of form.
A 2-1 defeat at Brighton on Sunday was a fourth in succession for the Gunners, and an eighth reversal in their last 13 outings.
He told Sky Sports following another disappointing display against Brighton: “It’s the first time it happens in my whole career, I must say.
“It’s not easy, but I have enough experience and enough desire to turn things around and I must say that, at the moment, when you need to stay in the game we are making a few mistakes at the wrong moments.
“We have to stick together and focus. We have no other solution.”
