His demise this season has been sad to see for those who worked with him at his peak
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has no plans to step down from his role as the club's manager as he believes he is still the best man for the job.
Laurent Koscielny has laid bare the crisis of confidence at Arsenal and admitted the players' self-belief will not return swiftly after Brighton inflicted the team's fourth defeat in the space of 11 days.
On Sunday, they lost 2-1 to Brighton & Hove Albion.
Wenger has been under pressure from the fans for much of the last decade, but FA Cup wins in 2014, 2015 and 2017, along with regular UEFA Champions League qualification prior to previous year, has helped the Frenchman remain at the club.
"At the moment, my future is not my main worry", said Wenger after the Brighton defeat. We know it is hard but you need to put your head down and work every day.
But Wenger warned the effects of the London club's recent schedule that included back-to-back 3-0 losses to Manchester City in the League Cup final and league, had taken their toll on his players.
The Gunners now sit sixth in the Premier League table with 8 points behind fifth placed Chelsea and 13 points behind fourth placed Tottenham.
Game 4: Michigan Wolverines outlast Iowa, 77-71, in overtime
Top dunk: Early in the second half, Michigan's Moe Wagner threw down a vicious one-handed slam that brought the crowd to its feet. Five players are averaging at least 8.2 points per game for Nebraska, they are James Palmer Jr. "The foul shots didn't go in".
"There's no uncertainty [with the players about his future], I told you many times". We need two teams to collapse and I don't see that happening.
Wenger, in a somewhat freaky analogy more befitting the occasional ramblings of compatriot Eric Cantona, the former Manchester United star, added: "When you struggle for confidence, it's hard as well when you have just the pants on..."
"You're not going to get in the top four again, this is the second year on the run - of course you would". He said: "If you love a place and they ask - I repeat, they ask - for help, you are always going to say yes". They play the first leg of their last-16 tie against Milan in Italy on Thursday.
Full-back Hector Bellerin is also believed to be fuming after being dropped just two hours before Sunday's game.
Arsenal were mathematically out of the Premier League title race after 29 games - the earliest they have been ruled out of the title race in a 38-game season under Wenger.
"If I had listened to people who were talking about where I was going to be, I would not have been here".
