London: English goalkeeping great David Seaman believes Arsenal must retain Arsene Wenger or risk suffering the problems as Manchester United are facing after the retirement of Alex Ferguson in 2013.
Wenger has drawn a lot of flak recently as his side crashed out of the Champions League and FA Cup. They have also managed to fall behind Leicester City and Tottenham Hotspur in the race for the EPL crown.

"I’m so fed up of all this negative stuff about Arsenal. A change at the top" Not for me. I’m a massive fan of Arsene," said Seaman. "Look what has happened to Manchester United.
"They lost a great manager in Ferguson. It’s always greener on the other side."
Seaman urged the fans to be patient. "Let’s see what happens at the end of this season. Let’s see what’s gone wrong and then sort it out," said the 52-year-old.
"But, for me, he’s (Wenger) been brilliant. I worked with him for about seven or eight years and he was fantastic.
I would stick by Arsene. I’ve always said that and I haven’t reason to change my mind. It’s frustrating for Arsenal fans.
I can understand that. I get frustrated at times. But we shouldn’t be negative about it. We should try to stay positive."
