Fabio Capello explains what the current Arsenal team is missing

Fabio Capello has commented on Arsenal’s Premier League title challenge, stating that their team is missing a star player.

As Arsenal aims to win the Premier League this season, competing with the likes of Manchester City and Liverpool, Mikel Arteta has successfully transformed the Gunners from underachievers to title challengers since joining the club.

While they came close to winning the title last season, they fell short in their bid to become champions of England again. Despite initial predictions, they have continued to perform well this season and remain in contention for the title.

However, the question remains whether they are better prepared to secure the title in the current campaign.

In discussing Arsenal’s chances, Capello acknowledges his appreciation for what Arteta is doing but emphasises that the team needs a star player to enhance their prospects.

He said, as quoted by Sport Witness:

“I must say that the purchase of Rice was fundamental.

“They undoubtedly paid a lot, but he gave the balance that Arteta needed.

“Arenal play together, there is no soloist: in the middle of the pitch the difference is made by the group, never knowing how to move together with and without the ball.

“They play nice football, fast and at a high pace but that “star” that can change history is missing.”

Just Arsenal Opinion

We have had a good season, just like the last campaign. Challenging for the title in back-to-back seasons shows that this team is now a much better side than it was before Arteta came through the door and is close to winning trophies.

  1. What a blessed relief to hear the thoughts of CAPELLO, a football man with true standing in the game , rather than the inane ramblings of Agbonlahor, Carragher , O’Hara, Campbell.
    Oh, its better than two refreshing weeks at the seaside!

    1. So true Fabio. We need a refined goal scorer in the calibre of Thiery Henry, Van Persie etc to easily win the league and Champions League.

  2. We need a no nonsense gladiator goal getter it’s as simple 👌 as that.
    Teams can score against us but we will then score more with our gladiator to frighten the hell out the defending opponents.
    This will bring us the title.

  3. What he means is we need a top notch striker that can actually put chances away on a regular basis.
    We are probably 30+ goals away from being title contenders at the moment.

  4. He is right, Gabriel Jesus is not reliable
    Yes he is a good player but not the striker who can make us challenge the title..We need a striker that’s all

  5. I agree with capello. I think we are hoping at least one of Saka, martinelli or odegaard will break through and become that star player who can make the kind of difference capello is talking about. Each of them has come close at times, but so far all have fallen slightly short of that level imo. Saka has been the closest this season, but still not quite leaving his mark in the way Henry, Bergkamp, fabregas or van persie would.

  6. I would say the team needs a proper finisher who everages a goal each game. That’s what we are lacking quite clearly. Creativity is plenty but chances are being wasted by our too average strikers

  7. He is right, we need q natural striker like MITROVICH, who left Fulham to Alhilal in Saudi, that striker is what we really need, he could be our saviour.
