Walcott: Time to stand up

Published Add your comment

Theo Walcott has called on Arsenal's players to take responsibility and ease the pressure on manager Arsene Wenger.

The Frenchman has come in for criticism from sections of the club's fans in recent weeks while shielding his players from the worst of the Gunners faithful's frustrations, and Walcott says now is the time for him and his team-mates to stand up and be counted.

"The manager will take all the stick," he told the Daily Telegraph. "He looks after us. He believes in us. As players we need to look at ourselves. We need to take responsibility. The last few games haven't been good enough."
