Arsenal fans have slammed star striker Alexandre Lacazette after he backed under-pressure boss Unai Emery.
The forward has struggled to replicate his early-season form following his return from injury, with the Gunners winning just once in their last seven competitive fixtures.
That worrying form has heaped the pressure on Emery, however, it appears as if the club are willing to give the Spaniard some more time.
Last season when we were unbeaten in 20 games in a row nobody said anything about the coach.
We miss confidence and we need the international break. I hope we are going to come back well.
As expected, his comments didn’t go down well with some supporters, who were quick to hit out at the Frenchman.

Lacazette’s comments clearly haven’t gone down well with a section of fans, but calls for the club to sell the 28-year-old are strange.
He’s been one of the club’s best performers since his arrival from Lyon back in 2017, and with his future up in the air, supporters should be behind the striker.
More negative comments will only push him further out the door in north London, which could, in time, be a silly move by the Gunners faithful.
