Despite Arsenal finishing second in this years Premier League, Arsene Wenger has had to endure constant criticism from the fans for not buying a top striker last summer, and there were even a small proportion of Gooners calling for his head if we didn’t end the season as Champions.
The Arsenal legend David Seaman believes that the Gunners will not get a better manager if Arsene steps down, and really wants Le Prof to waylay the protests by ending up on top next season.
“For me, Arsene’s the best.” Seaman said. “I’ve worked with him I know how good he is. I’m just desperate for him to win it again, just to shut everybody up.”
“A lot of Arsenal fans think that the pace that Arsene set is the standard but it won’t be, it’ll fall below that if you get a new manager in.”
Seaman goes on to suggest that theonly way to appease the fans next summer is for the club to show some real ambition this summer.
“There’s more and more [fans] getting on that bandwagon of ‘Wenger out’ and I think the only way to stop that is by signing at least two players – finished article players,” he said.
“Not young, up-and-coming players who we don’t know what they’re like – top quality internationals where you know what you’re going to get.”
Ironically this is exactly what the Arsenal fans themselves have been saying for the last few years. The mantra every summer is that we need a top top striker and another top level CDM. It looks like we are close to getting the DM in Granit Xhaka, so the next thingthe boss must concentrate on is the striker.
If Wenger does manage that, will it be enough to keep the fans quiet until the end of next season?
