Mohamed Elneny Pleads With Arsenal Fans For Better Treatment In Emotional Interview

Mohamed Elneny has turned things around a bit at Arsenal this season, after being brought back into the fold by Mikel Arteta.

The 28-ear-old has featured in 19 of the Gunners' 33 Premier League games to date, and 11 of their Europa League ties.

However, despite this return to the first team, the Egypt international has still been the target of some fans disappointed with his impact at the club.

With supporters now increasingly disenchanted with the north London outfit after its part in the failed attempt to create a European Super League, Elneny has called for the Emirates Stadium faithful to at least unite behind the team on the pitch.

He told Sky Sports: "I need you to support me - not to put me down. Supporter means you have to support.

"Not waiting for me to do one bad pass and then after speak about me, or one bad game.

"You have to support in the bad moments, not the good moments. In the good moments everybody is a supporter.

"I need you when I have a bad game. When I have a bad game I need you next to me saying 'no you are good, keep going, we are next to you'.

"This will make me happy and you will make the world happy. You will make me improve more because I can see the support next to me."

Supporters protested the ownership of Stan Kroenke ahead of their 1-0 defeat to Everton on Friday, and it doesn't look like anger against the club's management is gong away any time soon.

However, could supporters be more helpful to the XI on the pitch? Many certainly think they hve been too harsh towards Elneny...
