Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger was reportedly completely silent in the dressing room after the 8-2 defeat against Manchester United on Sunday.

The Frenchman suffered his worst loss as Gunners boss at the hands of United, and reacted dismissively by not speaking to any of his players in the immediate aftermath of the game.

The Gunners crumbled against the Premier League champions in humiliating fashion, but the club reportedly remain behind Wenger.

“The board and everyone at the club is 100 per cent behind the manager who has brought us unprecedented success,” a club source told the Daily Mirror.

Because of the manner of defeat, the north London club announced they will write to all of their supporters at the match, offering to cover the cost of an away game in the future.

A club statement on Monday read: “Sunday’s result was obviously disappointing for everyone connected with the club.

“Our travelling fans were magnificent throughout and we want to recognise their fantastic support.”

The under-fire Arsenal boss is now looking to build his squad in what little time is left of the transfer window.

Park Chu-Young is set to join from Monaco for a fee in the region of £3 million after the Gunners lost Samir Nasri and Gael Clichy to title rivals Manchester City, as well as finally succumbing to Barcelona’s overtures for club captain Cesc Fabregas.

Arsenal have also been linked with Bolton Wanderers defender Gary Cahill, Fenerbahce left-back Andre Santos and Rennes midfielder Yann M’Vila.
