Barcelona midfielder Alex Song has revealed that he thinks Arsenal should stick by manager Arsene Wenger and believes sacking him would be the wrong decision.

The last two seasons has seen the pressure levels rise drastically for Wenger and a lot of the fans are calling for change, especially in the dugout and also in the board-room.

The club are still hunting for their first trophy since 2005 and the 2012/13 season will go by without a piece of silverware being won by the Gunners, which extends their wait to eight years.

The club are currently in a top-four battle with London rivals Chelsea and Tottenham and reports have been suggesting in recent weeks that Wenger could leave the club in the summer in order to join mega-rich French side Paris Saint Germain, but the manager himself has dismissed those talks.

Alex Song was signed by Arsene Wenger for Arsenal back in 2005, but the manager sold the Cameroon international to Spanish giants Barcelona last summer and despite being sold by him, Song still has faith that he is the right man for the club.

Song told reporters: "I spent eight years with him and he's just unbelievable. I still keep in touch with him and the last time I met him he was very happy. Hopefully he'll stay longer at Arsenal because if they lose him today then they won't be the same."

Despite struggling to break into the first-team, Song also revealed that he is very happy in Spain and loves playing with 'world-class' footballers.

"It's a pleasure to be here," the 25-year-old added. "Many people want to be here so I know I'm lucky to be here.

"It is different here than Arsenal. It's not the same. Arsenal have very good players but Barcelona have the best player in the world - Lionel Messi - and that's why the pace is different.

"We have quality players. I'm not saying Arsenal don't have quality players because they do, but Barcelona are the best team in the world."
