Former Arsenal striker Eduardo has given his full backing to Arsene Wenger and believes he should be given time to change the club’s current fortunes, The
The Croatian international is now plying his trade with Ukranian side Shakhtar and will represent his country at this summer’s European Championships. Eduardo suffered a horrific leg injury at Arsenal and did not fully recover to recapture his early form under Wenger. The Arsenal boss has seen his side lose 4-0 in Milan and then lose 2-0 in the FA Cup fifth round away at Sunderland, so will be looking for success in today’s North London derby with Tottenham.
Eduardo is certain that despite what looks to be seven seasons without a trophy for Arsenal, Wenger is the right man to succeed. The 28 year old believes that another manager would do much worse than Wenger and Arsenal fans need to have patience.
“Sometimes people don’t have patience and they think they must win everything all the time. You cannot come first or second every year for 10 years; I don’t think fifth is such a bad thing for Arsenal. Arsene Wenger made Arsenal and Arsenal made Wenger. If he goes away, I doubt anyone else could keep Arsenal playing at the same level’, Eduardo said.
