Wenger bizarrely claims Arsenal are in ‘GOOD SHAPE’ despite the Worst EPL start
Arsene Wenger once masterminded Arsenal to an unbeaten league season but despite his old club’s catastrophic form, he still believes they’re in ‘good shape.’
The Invincible coach, Arsene Wenger, oversaw some tough times in N5 although the experiences can’t be compared to disasters in Arteta’s reign. The Gunners finished eighth last season and this season, they have no points, nor goals with three games played. This is their worst start to a league campaign in 67 years.
Regardless, Wenger is still hopeful that the north Londoners can recover. He said, “I’m 71. I’ve given this club the best years of my life. At the moment I’m just a fan”.
“Today the club is in good shape.”
‘They had two tough games (against Chelsea and Manchester City), the team has potential and I hope they can come back.’
Excuses like the absence of injured Thomas Partey plus Covid-hit Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Ben White have been raised but the performances and attitude shown on the field have revealed a far deeper-rooted crisis.
Manchester City smashed the Gunners 5-0 after former captain Granit Xhaka lost his head and was sent off for the umpteenth time in red and white – with 2-0 defeats to Brentford and Chelsea capping a miserable start.
Arteta is on the brink of becoming the third manager to be replaced since Wenger stepped down, with Unai Emery and Freddie Ljungberg also having a crack.
The north Londoner’s greatest boss was hounded out of the Emirates by the supporters’ angry Wenger Out campaign, which has spectacularly backfired.
Wenger ensured the club’s lucrative spot in European competitions for more than two decades, only for Arsenal to fall short of qualification last season and accelerate their decline since the Frenchman’s departure.
While Mr. Wenger works on his proposals for the World Cup to be held every other year, the once-great club is crumbling around Mikel Arteta.
