Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has come in for a lot of criticism lately and many people have been suggesting that it is time for him to step aside and let somebody else take the reins. However, former Arsenal and England striker Paul Mariner says that Arsene is still the right man for the job.

While talking to BBC Sport, Mariner explained, “Arsene Wenger is a fantastic manager, he always has been and always will be. He's the right man both business wise and football wise to get it right. I've got no doubts that he'll pull it around.”
He added, “I think that teams have blips and everybody always looks at the manager, but the players have got to stand up and be counted. The January transfer window is an opportunity and there's nobody better at picking talent out from various parts of the world than Wenger.”

However, while Paul Mariner might still have faith in Arsene Wenger, Arsenal fans are beginning to lose patience with him. Arsenal have had a poor start to their Premier League campaign, while the embarrassment got even worse when they were knocked out of the Capital One Cup by League Two Bradford.
