Arsène Wenger says he was grateful to receive the praise of Stan Kroenke this week.

The Arsenal manager has overseen three consecutive wins after a disappointing start to the Premier League campaign and he received a glowing tribute from the Club’s majority shareholder, who declared: "Arsène's our man. That's who we put our confidence in."

Mr Kroenke's comments were warmly received by Wenger himself.

"I am grateful he has confidence in my abilities to sort our problems out because that is not easy to find in football," he said.

"When you find [that confidence] it gives you a chance as a manager. There is never need to panic, panic doesn't solve problems."
