Vieira: Wenger won’t throw towel and walk out

Arsenal legend Patrick Vieira backed the Gunners’ manager Arsene Wenger despite the big amount of criticism the Frenchman receives recently.

“He [Wenger] is going through a really difficult period but at the same time I know Arsene and he is not the kind of person who will throw the towel in and walk out of this situation,” Vieira told Omnisport.

“He will fight for it because he is proud and he will give everything like he has been doing for the football club.”

Vieira is sure Arsenal players do not give their 100% on pitch, thus letting Wenger down.

“It is true that people are doubting his capability to manage the team… but I think you have to look at the players and in some situations the players have been letting Arsene down a lot because coaches have responsibility but players have responsibility as well,” the Frenchman concluded.

Patrick Vieira and Arsene Wenger worked together at Arsenal between 1996 and 2005.
