Wenger – The Swansea game was the turning point

Manager Arsene Wenger spoke to Arsenal’s official website about the way the past weeks went at the club and about what turned the season around from his point of view. According to the Frenchman things are positive now at the club and The Gunners are ready to continue their good late form.

“I have enjoyed it very much [over the past few weeks] because I have felt the spirit in the dressing room was good and that the team would do absolutely everything to get out of [our situation],” said Wenger.

“It was tough because we didn’t win games but it was enjoyable because you could feel the core strength of the team was very positive.”

“However you never know in my job. It’s like being on a boat which goes across the world. You never know when the next storm will come.”

“When we lost at Man United we had a break and then we played at home and won – just,” he said.

“The turning point was not to lose two or three games on the trot because after that it is like being in quicksand.”

The Swansea match can indeed be seen as the turning point of the season for Arsenal, but there’s still a lot of work and catching up to do for Wenger’s team. The next big step will be against WBA on home turf today. The Frenchman must motivate his lads into winning the game if he wants to be able to build on their confidence.
