‘Crisis? What crisis?’ That’s the headline of ESPN Brasil’s story about Arsenal’s 3-0 win over Bournemouth at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday.
Reporter João Castelo Branco managed to interview Arsene Wenger after the match, who was pretty happy with the team’s performance and the support.
“I think the fans are behind the team and the team performed well. We had a convincing performance against a team who had a very good game against Manchester City. So I’m very pleased with both.”
Castelo Branco interviewed a couple of Arsenal fans outside the stadium, with some of them, including a father and a son, still disagreeing about whether should Wenger stay or leave the club.
The manager was questioned about fan opinion, and claims he understands it as a normal behaviour of society.
“It’s over the top, but that’s part of the modern society. We live in a speedy society, where every judgement is definite, but sport and life is movement you know, all performances go up and down in life, even if we are professionals. We have to perform in every single game, but your opponents are in the same position, and sometimes they get on top.”
With the win, Arsenal go to six points and are currently in 11th place in the table. The Gunners are now preparing for a visit to Koln for the Europa League Group Stage on Thursday, and then have a difficult challenge ahead as they visit Chelsea at Stamford Bridge next Saturday.
