Arsenal's January-February form ranked from best to worst since 2007
The Frenchman’s contract finishes at the end of the season and though a two year extension has been offer, he appears to be stalling on a decision over whether to sign it.
But speaking on ESPN, former Chelsea, Celtic and Scotland midfielder Burley, blasted Arsenal supporters, describing them as ‘spineless’.
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger
He said: "I'm telling you, Arsenal fans: you are spineless. You are the mirror image of your team: weak, mentally weak.
"They follow their club across Europe and up and down the country in England, and they accept the mediocrity – and it is mediocrity, by a club of that standard, getting in the top four.
Arsenal fans made their feelings known after the Chelsea defeat
"They keep using the Champions League as some barometer for their success but every year up until now – apart from the time they got to the final in Paris [in 2006] – they've been knocked out in the round of 16. Every time. What's the point?
"Wenger at the moment – one: he's getting paid well, and two: he's either too ignorant or arrogant, to think he should not be moving on."
He added: "Arsene Wenger between 1996 and 2004 was amazing, absolutely amazing. But between 2004 and 2017, it is stale.

"Yet the spineless Arsenal fans will not get up at the Emirates and voice their opinion, and really stamp their feet: 'We want change, we want change. It might hurt for a couple of years, but we want to go in a different direction.'
"Now if the Arsenal fans don't believe they've got a voice that can change that thinking, that mindset, within the Arsenal hierarchy, then they're wrong.
"Because as fans, you can make that change, you can pressurise the board to think again; pressurise the manager to think: 'Well, I need to maybe take a backseat, and let somebody else get in.'"
