Former Liverpool star Craig Bellamy: Why Arsenal may never win Premier League title

Craig Bellamy

Former Liverpool and Manchester City forward Craig Bellamy claims that Arsenal need to be better defensively in order to win the Premier League title.

Former Liverpool forward Craig Bellamy has made a big statement about Arsenal.

Speaking to Sky Sports on Sunday, the ex-Wales international claimed that until and unless the Gunners sign a defensive midfielder, they are not going to win the Premier League title… ever.

‘Going forward, they will never have a problem’, said Bellamy. ‘But defensively, there has just always been a problem. Until they get that defensive midfielder sorted out, I just can’t see Arsenal ever winning the league’.

It is a massive statement from former Manchester City star Bellamy, but one that many Arsenal fans would agree with.

Arsenal have not won the Premier League since 2004 and are very unlikely to win it this term. Manager Arsene Wenger has been strongly criticised for not signing a world-class centre-back and a top-quality defensive midfielder in the summer transfer window.

The North London club have come to winning the title in recent years, but they have always fallen short.
