“You look at the money Manchester United, Liverpool and Manchester City spend and, unless you join them and put the cash on the table to compete for the best players, you are going nowhere.
“If you sack Arsene Wenger and then say to the guy who replaces him ‘you have no money to spend on new players’, I would ask; what was the point of sacking Wenger in the first place?”
Those are the words of former Arsenal midfielder Emmanuel Petit who, in a recent interview with Independent.ie, let it be known that he’s a bit perplexed by the current situation at the Emirates. The Gunners were unable to make much noise in the January transfer window aside from bringing in Denis Suarez, which is a stark contrast to their dealings back in the summer.
Petit spent three years with Arsenal from 1997 to 2000, during which time he experienced what it was like to be managed by the aforementioned Arsene Wenger in his prime.
