The hierarchy of Arsenal continue to support Arsene Wenger despite their struggles and the growing unrest from supporters.

Wenger’s critics were given more ammunition on Tuesday night when his team crashed to a 5-1 home defeat against Bayern in the second leg of the Champions League last 16 to exit 10-2 on aggregate.

Wenger has been offered a new two-year deal.

As recently as four weeks ago, there was a confidence at the club’s top level that Wenger would sign his new deal but since then he has come to look increasingly beleaguered and washed out.
