Laurent Koscielny has revealed he feels the pains fans are currently going through after crashing out of the Champion’s League and the FA Cup.
Fans are angry with Arsene Wenger and have been calling for him to step down after 20 years at Arsenal.
Arsenal Wenger is yet to win the EPL since the ‘Invincible’ In 2004 and fans are frustrated and want him to leave.
Koscielny said: “I can understand the frustration of supporters — the club hasn’t won the title for a long time.
“But we’re doing our best every season to lift this trophy. There are ups and downs in the season with injuries and lack of form.
“But the coach is still the right man to help us win the league, even if we only have a very small chance.”
When he was asked why Arsenal are once again fading in the title race, Koscielny said: “It’s complicated. We had a good first part of the season, where we were first or second but when we reached February we had a few injuries.
“When you don’t have Santi Cazorla for practically four months, when Danny Welbeck comes back after ten months out, it’s complicated to challenge certain teams.
“Now we’ve got eight finals left — we have no room for error any more. We’ve used up all of our Joker cards.
“We will have to get stuck in, not just think playing good football will be enough to win games.”
