Arsenal boss Wenger dismisses falling home crowds: No big concern

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger insists the falling attendances at Emirates stadium isn't a concern.

Arsenal hit their record low attendance in September's EFL Cup tie against Doncaster, when only 44,064 tickets have been sold.

“It's not a big concern because our crowd is very solid at the moment," Wenger said. “We have played on some special days, we don't go for the league [title].

“I believe we have a very faithful crowd, very faithful fans, who will always be there and support the club. When you look at the renewal numbers for next season, they are absolutely outstanding.

"We are sold out in every single game so I don't know where the problem is at the moment. If you feel like next season it will not be the case, then we'll have to face it. But I believe that, if you look at our numbers and how much people want to renew tickets for next season, I don't believe that we have a major problem.

“We have a major problem at the moment because we're not in a position to win the league. That's our biggest problem. The biggest problem is not the number of fans who are behind the team."
