Arsenal captain Thomas Vermaelen has come out on record stating that the dressing room atmosphere at the Emirates is healthy despite the recent poor run of form. Vermaelen believes that the stability of the club with Arsene Wenger in-charge for the last 16 years has ensured a healthy atmosphere in the change room and that all the players are focused and understand each other well.
Arsenal havenâ€™t been impressive so far under the leadership of the Belgian as they have slipped to 10th position in the Premier League with 21 points in 15 games so far. A poor string of results of late have spiked suspicion regarding disputes in the Arsenal dressing room between players and the support staff, but Vermaelen has rubbished any such claims, insisting that all is well with his side.
Speaking in the January edition of fourfourtwo Vermaelen was quoted as saying, â€œThere is a consistency here as a result of the manager being here for so long. There is a clear vision that everyone understands and believes in. There are never any arguments here. I played at Ajax and we had five managers in five years. That is not good for the atmosphere."
The 26 year old also added that despite the recent transfer of big players like Cesc Fabregas and Robin Van Persie from the club, Arsenal will continue to remain a big and an attractive club to play football for.
