Shocking – Wenger Sends Message To Some Arsenal Fans

Arsene Wenger has warned negative Arsenal fans that their views have the potential to ‘spread like a virus’ and damage morale at the club.

The long-serving Frenchman, whose current contract is set to expire at the end of the current campaign, has been forced to contend with major criticism from an increasingly large section of the club’s support over the last few years.

Wenger has steadied the ship, however, following a sluggish start to the new season, and with his side now within just two points of Premier League leaders Manchester City he believes the ‘vibes are positive’ but has warned the tide can change dramatically and in short space of time.

‘I must say that the negativity comes very quickly – it is a virus that travels very quickly and goes very slowly,’ said Wenger reflecting on last season’s defeat at home to Saturday’s opponents Swansea, a result which killed off their title aspirations.

‘We damaged our chances. We were really criticised a lot after the Tottenham game,’ Wenger added, speaking about the following match which they drew with their rivals. ‘But against Tottenham we did extremely well to come back to 2-2 with 10 men.

‘I believe at the moment the vibes are positive. We are closer to the teams at the top. We have to continue to get to the next level. We have to create a positive environment and to do that we have to perform.

‘We want to perform. The rest we have to ignore. Let’s focus on the way we perform and the way we play.’
