Ex-Gunner David Seaman has warned against sacking Arsene Wenger, via four four two sports.
Wenger’s future has been under intense speculation in recent weeks with some reports claiming the club is already preparing for the departure of the 66-year-old this summer.
Fans have also called out the French tactician to step down from his role at the end of the season.
Former Arsenal goalkeeper David Seaman has now asked the club not to sack the manager or risk suffering the same problem Manchester United is facing since Alex Ferguson left Old Trafford.
Manchester United have been unable to return to the top of English football where they occupied prior to Ferguson’s departure and Seaman fears that may be Arsenal’s fate if they sack Wenger.
“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.”
