Arsene Wenger insists he’s the right man for the Arsenal job
Moaning Arsenal supporters and the media are putting lots of pressure on Arsene Wenger at the moment, although the Frenchman is confident he can improve the fortunes of Arsenal FC.

Wenger’s Gunners travel to Reading on Monday night where they famously won a League Cup match 7-5 earlier this season and the Arsenal manager feels that the team could still have a successful season despite exiting the same competition at the hands of Bradford during the week.
“My job is to be determined and give importance to what is important. What is important is I love football, I love this club and I give my best for this club. The rest, I cannot interfere with,” Wenger said on Friday morning.
“Believe me, I am highly focused on doing that and all the rest, that doesn’t interfere with my thinking at all.
“I am very determined and very hungry and if I wasn’t, I wouldn’t sit in front of you.”
“I can understand that people criticise when the results are not as expected, but it looks like it has become the modern way to think,” he said.
“You say that 16 years can be a handicap, but as well it can be an advantage because you have experience, you love the club.
“If I sit here, it is because I have really shown how much I love this club.
“Also, you know you have gone through difficult periods before and you know how to turn it around.”
