Arsenal media round-up: Legend comments on what Wenger's current squad is lacking

Arsene Wenger In Emirates Press Conference 2

A round up of news stories this morning related to Arsenal.

Arsenal legend Emmanuel Petit has told the Daily Mirror what he feels Arsenal’s talented squad is lacking.

The Frenchman has suggested that there is a need for more of a killer touch among the Arsenal ranks ahead of the Champions League game against Monaco tomorrow.

“Arsenal have very pretty players but there are not ‘killers’ in this team. At that time, we were tough, we did not play to look good,” he said.

Arsene Wenger has been quoted by ESPN revealing his thoughts the first time he visited Highbury.

Wenger is the longest serving manager in the Premier League and it seems his admiration for the club started growing long before he took the reigns as first team boss.

“There was a fantastic atmosphere at Highbury and I just wondered 'is everywhere like this? Even at that time I thought it would be great to be part of that,” he said.

Wenger first visited Highbury on his own back in 1989.

Arsenal midfielder Santi Cazorla has been quoted by FourFourTwo apologising to Malaga fans for leaving the club.

Cazorla has turned into one of Arsenal’s most important central midfield players since he moved to the club from the Spanish side.

“I'd like to apologise for not being able to say goodbye properly as I know that would have been the best thing,” he said.

Cazorla is thought to have left Malaga for financial reasons.
