Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has hit back at his critics, who still question his ability to win titles with the club, and described the comments against him as ‘boring’.
The Frenchman recently became Europe’s longest serving manager after he completed his 19 years at the Emirates Stadium. But he continues to receive criticism after the Gunners have gone five games without a win in all competitions.
Arsenal are also on the verge of exiting the Champions League and slipping out of the Premier League title race.
Wenger has lashed out at those who feel he should leave if the club failed to grab a trophy this season.
The 66-year-old insisted that he had worked with the club for so many years and added that it was quite disappointing to still justify his capability for the job.
“I have no problem to cope with everything, but I find that a bit boring in the end. I always have to convince you that I am good enough. I worked for 35 years at the top level,” Wenger was quoted as saying by goal.com.
Admitting that everyone has a right to express his opinions, Wenger, however, vowed to shift his focus entirely on doing his job with full commitment.
“I feel privileged to have the confidence of the club for such a long time. I work seven days a week with full commitment. That’s all I can do,” Wenger insisted.
Arsenal, who claimed their last victory against surprise Premier League leaders Leicester City, will play their next match against Hull City at KC Stadium on Wednesday.
