7 worrying quotes from Arsenal's Arsene Wenger

Wenger Statue

Here's something for those Arsenal fans who are already questioning manager Arsene Wenger's approach to building a successful team.

7 worrying quotes from Arsenal's Arsene Wenger (they surely speak for themselves):

1. 'We (at Arsenal) do not buy superstars. We make them'.

2. 'We were considering him (Ruud van Nistelrooy) and Francis Jeffers and, in the end, we went for Jeffers'.

3. 'If I go into a season and I say, 'For fuck's sake, if we don't win anything, they will all leave,' I have already lost. The problem of the media is always to imagine the worst. The problem of the manager is always to imagine the best'.

4. 'If you have the money and you find the one player who can make you win and make the difference, no matter how expensive he is you should do it. But there are not many players in the world who will make a real difference'.

5. 'I want to go to the end of my job here (at Arsenal). I built this team, I want to deliver with this team and I feel if I left I would have in some way betrayed my own beliefs'.

6. 'The first trophy is to finish in the top four'.

7. At some clubs success is accidental. At Arsenal it is compulsory'.
