Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger was visibly disappointed as the Gunners lost against Blackburn Rovers, on Saturday, by four goals to three.
Speaking after the game, the Frenchman labeled the season start as “terrible” adding that the number of goals conceded so far are way too much. In fact, the Gunners only won one of their first five Premier League games as they are 15th in the table with fourteen goals conceded and knowing that they could soon be close to the relegation zone as Tottenham, Sunderland and Fulham all have games in hand.
Asked about his future, the Arsenal boss rubbished rumours that he is considering leaving the Club as he again insisted that his objective is to focus and do well for the Gunners.
Not even on the bench at Ewood Park, Wenger concluded by answering questions on South Korea’s Chu Young Park as he confirmed that the former Monaco striker will feature in Arsenal’s next game, on Tuesday at the Emirates Stadium against Shrewsbury Town.
After the game, the manager said:
[Our season start?] It is terrible, it is just not good enough. Of course we are very frustrated, the spirit in the team is quite willing but if you look at the number of goals we have conceded that is not good enough.
You cannot come [at Ewood Park] and concede four goals the way we did today. On the other hand I believe that the group will take off but it is important that we can get results.
[My future?] Speculation is part of modern life, there is nothing I can do about that. My future is focused on me giving the best for the Club.
[Chu Young Park?] On Tuesday [in the Carling Cup] he will play, yes. We have quite a big squad.
