Arsene Wenger has had some pretty severe words to say ahead of the clash against Swansea City.
When asked whether or not his side could still win the league, Wenger responded:
“If I say to you: ‘No, the objective is not to win the title’, then I have to commit suicide when I go out from here,” the Frenchman said.
“The objective now realistically is for us to get back in a position where we have a chance to win the title.
I guess this attitude shows Wenger is no way near in the frame of mind that might see him quit the club. Many had suggested the manager could stand down at the end of the season, I don’t see it.
“That is far from done. Today it looks stupid, but there are 28 games to go. Twenty eight games – it is not bad. We have 84 points to take. We just have to win the next game.”
The realistic Arsenal fan will tell you there is only the slimmest of chances of winning the title. If Arsenal were to drop points at the Liberty Stadium tomorrow, all of Wenger’s hope may disappear.
The Gunners sit 12 points behind leaders Chelsea, and must make up ground by taking all three points against Swansea tomorrow.
The game will be tough, but this Arsenal side certainly has enough quality to win. Alexis Sanchez will once again be central to Arsenal’s success, if there is any tomorrow.
Arsenal have been unlucky with injuries: Mathieu Debuchy, Olivier Giroud, Mesut Ozil and Laurent Koscielny have all picked up long term injuries this term. There are four key players in the Gunners line-up, it would effect any team.
Chelsea wouldn’t be the same without Gary Cahill, Diego Costa and Cesc Fabregas – but they have been more fortunate with injuries. Arsene Wenger must pick up some of the blame for the lack of failing to add some strength in depth in defence.
If he is so passionate, why didn’t he make the squad strong enough to realistically challenge?
Is Wenger delusional? Or is this the right type of attitude? Share your thoughts on this odd story below.
