We all know that the uncertainty over the contract talks with some of our biggest stars is killing Arsenal fans, and while we are still waiting for some big stars to arrive the frustration is growing stronger every day.
But according to one of our Invincibles stars, Robert Pires, we need to have faith that Wenger is doing all he can to get Arsenal back up challenging for the League title next season, and his number one priority must be renewing our top stars contracts. “This summer for Arsene Wenger is very important,” Pires said on Arsenal.com. “In my opinion, he needs to try to extend the contracts of Alexis and Mesut Ozil. This is the first thing, and after of course you need to sign new players.
“Everything has changed because we’re not playing in the Champions League, but we must focus and look forward to the new season. The most important thing is to win the Premier League, for him, the players and the fans.
“I believe in Arsene Wenger, I believe in this squad, I believe in the young players like Alex Iwobi and Hector Bellerin. When I see the names on the paper for the squad, it’s very good.
“Some players can play at a very high level and play for the national team. Maybe Arsene Wenger [would like] two or three more players but the stability is here because he’s extended his contract.”
Stability, cohesion, continuity – some of Wenger’s favourite words. But Pires is right, if Alexis and Ozil re-sign on the dotted line, then the rest will follow. A great new striker, a brilliant midfielder, and we are good for next years title.
We must believe in Wenger!
