Arsenal star defends Wenger

Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has defended Arsene Wenger, saying that the criticism that he receives is ‘a bit unfair’.

The Gunners boss has come under a barrage of criticism from fans, pundits and journalists alike after failing to improve on last year’s disappointing campaign.

Arsenal currently sit 13 points behind their North London rivals Tottenham who occupy the fourth and final Champions League qualification spot.

While qualifying for the Champions League via their league position is almost an impossibility, the Gunners still have the opportunity to qualify by winning the Europa League.

Despite the disappointing season so far, Arsenal have hit a but of form in recent weeks, with club record signing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in particular seeming to have settled in quickly, having scored in each of his last four games for the club.

When asked by Sky Sports whether Wenger deserves the criticism he receives, Aubameyang said: “It’s a difficult question. Sometimes I think it’s a bit unfair.

“We’re playing better in these last games and I hope the people can see this.”

Arsenal’s next fixture is of course Thursday’s Europa League quarter-final second leg fixture against CSKA Moscow, a game which Aubameyang cannot feature in due to being cup tied.
