Arsene Wenger claims Arsenal have moved forward under his guidance without any help or money.Â Pressure has intensified on the Arsenal boss following Sundayâ€™s FA Cup exit at the hands of Watford, while the Gunners look set to exit the Champions League on Wednesday evening unless they can overturn a 2-0 first-leg defeat against Barcelona at Camp Nou.
And amid calls for his resignation at the end of the season, Wenger launched a staunch defence of his 20-year reign: â€œI have no doubt about my motivation.
â€œI built this club with hard work and without any external resources. If you compare the club when I arrived and how it is today, it is moved forward â€“ and without any help from anybody.
â€œThere was no money from anyone. Now I am even more motivated than the first day I arrived. And I feel even more pressure and responsibility to keep this club moving forward.â€
