Tony Adams: Arsenal would struggle to replace ‘unbelievable’ Arsene Wenger
Former Arsenal defender Tony Adams has said that the club would struggle to replace the ‘unbelievable’ Arsene Wenger, should they let him leave.
Wenger’s contract expires soon and he has stated that he will stay and sign a new deal over the summer but doubts still remain at the fact he still hasn’t physically signed anything.
The Frenchman has managed to get Arsenal into the Champions League yet again this season and secured the long-term futures of key players but is still to sign his new deal, despite verbally confirming he would.
Arsenal head into the FA Cup final this weekend with a chance to win their first piece of silverware for 9 years.
“It’s about time we won something! But Arsène’s been unbelievable for the club. They’ve had a good run in the Champions League and they’ve done well financially,” Adams told Sky Sports News.
“But they’re now going into an FA Cup final – there’s no place for losers and they need to win this one! He better stay though! I don’t know anyone else who could do it. He’s done magnificently.
“The production of Arsenal players is second to none. They’ve been sacking managers left right and centre and it’s great credit to Arsenal Football Club they’ve kept a man in place.
“He’s worth his weight in gold. If I was the owner I’d very much keep him in position. If something’s not broke then don’t fix it.”
Wenger has won 577 of his 1009 games in charge of Arsenal.
