SIR ALEX FERGUSON has reached out to under-fire Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger to offer his support.

The Frenchman, 68, told Sky Sports he is not sleeping well and feels "disastrous" as fans call for him to quit.

But he claims former Manchester United manager Fergie, who he clashed with several times while the Scot was still coaching, and other bosses are there for him during this tough time.

And Wenger has backed his players to stop the rot and start winning again.

The Premier League is a write-off with Arsenal 13 points off a top-four spot.

But last night's 2-0 win in Milan left the Gunners with a glimmer of hope of qualifying for the Champions League next season through the Europa League.

Wenger said: "At some stage, you need to respond and respond together with a good performance. That's what we did tonight.

"We have won again but we have not qualified. The result will lift the belief in the team again. When you lose three games in six days, it's always very difficult.



"We want to keep our focus and finish the job next week. That's what the target is."

The much-needed win over AC Milan comes after four straight defeats against Ostersunds, Manchester City twice and Brighton.

Supporters have lost patience with Wenger, who is out of contract at the end of next season.

But he insists his players have what it takes to get fans back on board.

He added: "I feel [we still have it].

"That's what we want to show. That is in front of us and that's what we want to show, that we have the mental resources and qualities.

"I spoke about the cup final but people forget that to get to the cup final in England, you need mental resources and you need mental qualities.

"We lost against a team who are dominating English football at the moment, and it was unexplainable.

"We have to accept that, it doesn't mean that the team has no spirit. We all have to show that until the end of the season."
