Arsenal midfielder, Henrikh Mkhitaryan has described as ‚Äústupid‚ÄĚ criticism being faced by new manager, Unai Emery, following Gunners‚Äô disappointing start to the new season.
Arsenal, for the first time since 1992, have lost their first two matches of the season with defeats to Manchester City and Chelsea.
Emery is attempting to implement a new style of football at the Emirate and Mkhitaryan, who scored and assisted during the 3-2 reverse at Stamford Bridge last weekend, feels it is far too early to judge the Spaniard and his methods.
‚ÄúAlways, stupid people can say or criticise a team that has played one game in the league,‚ÄĚ he told beIN Sports.
‚ÄúYou can criticise after one year, at the end of the season when we are going to see what we achieve. But you cannot criticise a team or players after one game, because that is not the main thing.
‚ÄúYou have to give time to the manager because he is new and has a new philosophy. Even the Roman Empire was not built in one yearor in one month.
‚ÄúWe need time and we are pretty sure we are going to move forward and have a good result.
‚ÄúEveryone is positive and looking forward and we are hungry to win games.‚ÄĚ
