Wenger backs the team's performance this season

Arsenal coach Arsene Wenger said that the second place in the Premier League is a success, and according to him, the team did a great effort to win as many games as they could this season.

This comes after being target of criticism, especially for not winning a title since 2005. The current season was promising, but losses to Birmingham in the FA Cup and to Barcelona in the Champions League were just too much for the fans.

"You must know that in times like these you have to trust these players and show strength. I won't pay attention to some people who have not worked half a day in football," Wenger blasted. "Those critics cannot imagine how much work is behind our strong squad, so I prefer not to listen to them."
