Aaron Ramsey has defended Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger, admitting that the players have “let him down at times”.
Wenger’s future at Arsenal is uncertain, with the manager’s current contract expiring at the end of the season.
A new deal has been offered by the club, but the Frenchman is as yet reluctant to agree terms, with a growing number of the fans calling for him to leave.
The Gunners are fourth in the Premier League table, and their chances of winning a trophy are slim after the 5-1 defeat to Bayern Munich in the first leg of their Champions League last-16 tie.
Ramsey admits that the players are just as accountable than the manager, if not more so.
“He’s been a great servant to Arsenal and great manager for me and the players,” he told the Mirror.
“We have let him down at times. It is unfair some of the things that have been said. People are entitled to their opinion but he has been great for me personally.”
