Arsenal captain Thomas Vermaelen has been shocked by calls for Arsene Wenger's head and insists he remains the right man for the job.

However, Vermaelen admits he can understand growing supporter unrest as Arsenal's struggles continue.


"Sometimes, as a player, you are frustrated as well. If you lose you get frustrated but it's not the right thing to act on, we have to stick together, work hard. We need each other. "The fans must not forget that we need them because they belong to the team and to the club. "We must stand behind each other, that's the only thing we can do. "At the moment there is a lot of disappointment because we lost," Vermaelen added. "We didn't play disciplined enough as a team to win this game, especially in the first half. They were strong. It was difficult. "Of course we are not happy. We are disappointed. We have to look at ourselves and stick together in difficult times. "Don't look at each other, don't blame each other, work hard every day to get the results back."
