Ex-Arsenal star: I just think tactically Wenger has lost it
Paul Merson has said that Arsene Wenger has lost it tactically, and the club will never get near the top again with him in charge.
Speaking on Sky Sports he said: “If they keep Wenger, I don’t see them getting close to the top.
“I just think tactically Wenger has lost it. Sometimes you’ve got to play games like horses for courses.
“Mourinho goes to places, sets up and makes sure they don’t get beat, Wenger does not play that game. He opens the game up and says: ‘You have a shot, we have a shot, best team wins’.”
Arsenal have finished outside of the top four for the first time in Arsene Wenger’s reign this season but still have the chance of walking away with a trophy when they face Chelsea in the final of the FA Cup.
There has been speculation all season over Wenger’s future and whether or not he would sign a new deal.
With just one more game to play this season it would be a shock if we did not find out very soon one way or the other.
At this stage, despite protests from some fans over his future, it would be a shock to find out that Wenger is going to leave.
