Arsenal have endured a torrid season and they are currently sitting in fifth position on the Premier League log.
ANTONIO CONTE insists Arsene Wenger deserves respect but admits this is a difficult moment for him.
His future is in the balance with his contract coming to an end and fans protesting against him.
But Conte thinks he’s done a good job at Arsenal by keeping them in Europe’s elite competition every year.
“It is not an easy moment for him,” Conte said.
“We are talking about a great manager and I think in 20 years at Arsenal he did very well.
“Every year Arsenal have stayed in the Champions League. This could be a good target, because it is not easy.
“This season six teams, next season seven or eight. I think he deserves respect for his past and for his work.”
