Former Arsenal striker Ian Wright has given his own take on Arsenal’s 4-0 defeat on Sunday to Liverpool.
Wright revealed his former team are in “crisis from top to bottom” and manager Arsene Wenger should leave, according to former Gunners striker Ian Wright.
“It’s an absolute nightmare,” said Wright, who scored 128 goals for Arsenal.
“Why can’t we get the players to play for us? Wenger carries the can,” he told BBC Radio 5 live.
He also added: “It comes back to his door. We are three games in and are at crisis point.
“Do I think he should go? I’d like him to go because I do not believe now he can motivate the players. It’s for himself and for his own sanity.
“It’s an absolute nightmare – where does he go from here? That team has not played for Wenger for years.”
Wenger has failed to strengthen his side in this summer transfer window and has only been able to complete the signing of Alexandre Lacazette from Lyon for a club record fee and also Sead Kolanisic from Schalker 04 on a free transfer
‘They should have binned Wenger last season’
Former England and Blackburn striker Chris Sutton agreed with Wright’s suggestion that the 67-year-old French boss was at fault.
“Wenger is to blame – he led everybody a merry dance,” said the 44-year-old. “He mesmerised supporters like the Pied Piper.
“He was selfish staying on. Even the most optimistic fan, what are they thinking? Wenger was disrespectful to the supporters last season – he should have gone.
“I’d bin him now. I would have binned him last season.”
