Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has sung the praises of the club's hardy away following.

The Gunners could only manager a 2-2 draw on the final day of the season, with Theo Walcott salvaging a point in the 89th minute at ten-man Fulham.

A season full of promise has fallen flat at the Emirates, and Wenger admitted that whilst the fans have been 'outstanding' on their travels, they have every right to be unhappy at a fourth place

"Our away fans have been outstanding all season and we would like to thank them. They are not happy, I am not happy, and we have to accept that," said Wenger post-match.

"I think I am responsible for the results and I am very disappointed. The players have had an outstanding attitude. We have accumulated disappointments that have had a big impact on the moral of the team.

"In decisive moments, we have never had the whole team together. We have to rectify some things in our squad and we will try to do it, but it is not easy even with money."


Whilst the Arsenal chief is keen not to go overboard with regards to potential summer signings, he's admitted that the club will look to be active when the window re-opens on July 1st.

However, finding the right player is the most important thing for Wenger, who is keen not to overspend despite having money at his disposal.

"We will try to do the right thing. I don’t know how much we have spent in recent years. We will try to buy the right players. The amount of money is not always linked with the quality of the player. We will spend the needed money but you first have to find the right players and then turn up with the money," said Wenger.

"If we find the right players we will spend the money. We cannot buy players for £50 million and, even if we try to strengthen our team and spend money if needed, that is fact."
