Gunners saw off Newcastle United 4-1 at the Emirates Stadium.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger went out of his way following the Gunners’ convincing 4-1 victory over Newcastle United at the Emirates Stadium this evening to thank and praise the home support, report the Daily Star, one week after relations appeared to hit rock bottom following the side’s defeat at Stoke City.
On that occasions, Wenger was booed and abused by Gunners fans on a platform at Stoke-on-Trent train station, but once quickfire goals from Santi Cazorla and Olivier Giroud had put the Gunners in charge tonight the Frenchman’s name could be heard reverberating around the Emirates Stadium.
Speaking after the match, Wenger thanked the Gunners faithful for their support and also reiterated his belief that it is only a minority of fans who have turned against him in recent weeks:
“Yes, of course, I’m thankful for the fans singing my name at the end of the match, but what you want is for our fans to be happy because we win football games.”
“Our job is to win football games and when we don’t do it I understand when they’re not happy.”
