Arsene Wenger: Arsenal players have forgotten how good they really are

Reports in France suggest that PSG President, Nasser Al-Khelaifi has enquired about Arsene Wenger's availability after reentering the fray to sign the Frenchman.

"In life you forget quickly how good you are".

Arsene Wenger has one last chance to salvage the worst year of his Arsenal reign and potentially save his job when the beleaguered manager faces AC Milan in the first leg of their Europa League last-16 tie today at the San Siro.

"It makes me think about last year, but last year we made 75 points in the Premier League and missed out on the Champions League by a point", Wenger said.

Asked about the general feeling at Arsenal ahead of Thursday night's Europa League clash with AC Milan, Koscielny said: 'We are disappointed with our results and disappointed with how we played.

"Be practical, pragmatic - focus on what you can do better and analyse well what you didn't do well and not be scared too much about the consequences of a bad result. We need to defend better, play quicker and do more things together".


The French coach went on to disclose that Alexandre Lacazette and Nacho Monreal are still out injured while Hector Bellerin has a knee injury.

He has presided over a miserable campaign that threatens to bring a painful end to his near 22-year spell in charge, following a wretched run of eight defeats in 13 games, with the 1-2 loss at Brighton on Sunday their fourth successive defeat in all competitions.

"When you have bad results, it's always bad for the team", France worldwide Koscielny added.

The Arsenal skipper claims his side are locked in a "negative spiral" and need to find a way out as quickly as possible to restore their battered confidence. It doesn't matter what's going on outside. We are in a negative spiral and it's hard to go out of this.

'We need to have a positive voice in our head because the brain dictates our legs, our body'. "We have to be positive to have a good result and step by step we will come back stronger".
