Protesters in the game against Norwich calling for change drew as much criticism as the Arsenal player’s half-hearted performances this season, but it did succeed in putting the coach’s future to the fore. Majority of the other fans stood in support of the French coach, but the disjointed mood and another streaky win, against a team they should have beaten comfortably, did cause him to reflect as well as reveal his plans for the future.
“I give my best for this club. You don’t spend 19 years at a club — like Sir Alex Ferguson spent 26 years — without giving every minute of your time. You give your whole life for that and try to do as well as possible. One target is to keep all of the people happy. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to do that this season.
When asked if he would stay on for 26 years, he replied: “No, no, never! Don’t worry. I will come to your newspaper and do it as well and ask you after how do you feel? But I think I can take that. I am in a public job and I have to live with judgments as long as it is respectful. Continue reading 'ARSENAL COACH SAYS HE IS NOT LEAVING DESPITE PROTESTS FROM FANS'»
Per Mertesacker says that he is fighting for his place at Arsenal and that he is not used to this situation before. The German international has been a first-team regular since coming to the club in 2011.
He has been part of the FA Cup successes that helped Arsenal to overcome the long trophy drought. However, he has been unable to feature in the first-team in the last few matches. Per Mertesacker has not been part of the starting line-up since the 2-1 loss against Watford in the FA Cup. Gabriel and Laurent Koscielny have become the first choice central defensive partnership since then.
Mertesacker, however, is not ready to give up on his place and has vowed to keep on fighting. At 31, he may not have time on his side and needs to be back in the first-team soon. The absence from the first team may be a temporary one, as Arsenal shift their focus to only the Premier League following the FA Cup exit. However, this also may result in less number of matches for Mertesacker to try and get back to the starting line-up before the end of the campaign. The 2015-16 campaign is almost sure to see the German make the fewest league appearances since his debut campaign with the club.
