It won’t be an over statement to say the club hierarchy are scared of replacing Arsene Wenger and being conscious of that has made him to be undeterred by the failure he has infected the club with in recent years.
Wenger has come under serious scrutiny recently following series of embarrassing performances which saw us losing six in our last nine games across all competitions and dropping outside the top four.
His body language, comments and reactions show that he doesn’t blink an eye about the fans and media reactions to the hoodoo the club is presently facing. No big club around the world, not even the small clubs would have given Wenger the kind of immunity he is currently enjoying at Arsenal.
And to infuriate the fans the more the French man defended his inability to win the premier league in the past 13 years by pointing out that Liverpool and Manchester United are also struggling in the league.
The French tactician was quizzed by beINSports and he said:
“You can be basically say that if you don’t win the championship it is not a successful season. I can understand that but you take clubs like Liverpool and they have not won the Premier League, they are a big club, you have clubs like Man City and Man United.”
Is Wenger trying to justify his failure with that statement or trying to silent his critics? Or does he really have a point there?
Truly, Liverpool have never won the Premier League and they have not qualified for the Champions League in recent seasons but Wenger should know that the Red Devils would not have retained him during those periods of trophy drought.
Maybe he also needs a quick remainder that United won the league as recent as 2013 and they are have the Champions League Trophy as well as the FIFA Club World Cup among major honours which are missing in Arsenal’s trophy cabinet. Despite United’s recent struggling they are still more successful than Arsenal.
