You Have To Suffer As A Manager - Arsene Wenger

He lost the ball to a dispossession or a mis-controlled touch six times in the match, leading Arsenal in this dubious honor. "You have to be capable to go through periods when it's very hard". "It's like a boxing match", Wenger said, reports Football.London.

Despite the masses calling for the board to drop the axe on him, Wenger has insisted that he is still the right man to take Arsenal forward. "We have to focus on the quality of our game". It can make you a better manager to face a crisis'. Arsenal lowered the tempo in the second half and we didn't pass it well.

Arsenal are languishing 13 points adrift of the Premier League's top four and a dismal 3-0 defeat against Manchester City in the League Cup final exposed numerous flaws in Wenger's squad.

"We all go through tough times but, when you take a little bit of perspective, we got to a cup final and played against the best team in the country".

"We defended with resilience until the end, and showed great pride and desire".

"They've done the frightful side of football, and we know they're fantastically creative and can do all the brilliant stuff going forward, but actually the discipline of defence and the way they dug in and worked hard as a team - that's what Arsenal fans want to see".

"We know what we're capable of doing, we just have to try and produce that more consistently".

Milan ended the first half without a shot on target and they almost started the second by gifting Arsenal another goal, with Donnarumma doing just enough to deny Welbeck after Franck Kessie wildly kicked the ball into the striker's path.

"If you say something about what happened in the past, you are talking about different coaches - I prefer only to think about the future for Troy and all the players".

Speaking to the media on Wednesday, Wenger highlighted what he believe his team needed to do to gain a positive result, such as "playing quicker" and "being more practical and pragmatic", and they certainly achieved those goals at San Siro. We are getting a good price betting on the draw and as a result, it is the wager which I am suggesting. They can come, want to play and want to win the game. "All I can tell you is that we are no closer to sorting anything out", he said. I try to enjoy every game.

"We can't just give up in the Premier League, we've got to keep fighting", he said.
