Ian Wright has claimed that Arsenal were silly to allow Arsene Wenger’s contract situation to stay in limbo up to this point. The Frenchman looks increasingly likely to stay with the club this summer, with an announcement expected tomorrow, but there has been contrasting statements…
Former Arsenal star Ian Wright has revealed that Arsene Wenger’s managerial reign is nearing its end, whilst slamming fans for disrespecting the Frenchman.
Ever since he signed for Arsenal back in the summer of 2012, the France international star Olivier Giroud has been under pressure and under fire from the football media as well as some Arsenal fans. And even when his performances and stats had convinced his critics in the media, it seemed like he could not win over a section if his own fans.
I am not sure if the former Arsenal and England international striker had someone specific in mind when he said this, but having listened to some of the opinions put forward in the football media by Ian Wright about the problems of the Gunners in recent years, I would hazard a guess that Arsene Wenger might not be too far from his thoughts.
The former Arsenal and England international star Ian Wright was on the TV panel for the Gunners´ opening Champions League match away to Dinamo Zagreb, and if anyone thought that meant that Arsenal would get an easy ride they were very much mistaken.
Ian Wright is such an Arsenal fan that it often interferes with his ability to be impartial in his role as a TV pundit and football journalist, but then again the same can be said of most of the former footballers working on the other side of the game these days and with all the anti-Arsenal bias, Wright at least helps to keep some balance.
