Arsenal midfielder, Tomas Rosicky, says he understands the fans frustrations, but insists that booing them isn’t helping.
The Czech international has just come back from another injury and returned in style with a goal against Olympiakos on Tuesday night and he is sure that the atmosphere at home games are damaging team morale.
The midfielder said in the Evening Standard: “I can understand the frustrations, I am an Arsenal fan as well when I am not playing.
“It is understandable but we have some young guys and this is not helping. We have to all stick together, which is what we did last season when everyone was writing us off.
“The performances we produced against Tottenham and AC Milan [in last season’s Champions League], you could feel the great atmosphere at the Emirates. Without doubt that was the best atmosphere I have ever played in.
“We have to win the people again, that is the challenge. It will be difficult but we are capable of doing it again. If we are all on board, Arsenal is a great place to play football.”
Rosicky will be hoping he can keep his first-team place when Arsenal entertain West Bromwich Albion at the Emirates on Saturday.
