[VIDEO] Watch Arsene Wenger’s ‘Embarrassing’ Speech At The Club’s AGM
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger spoke to fans and shareholders at the clubs AGM yesterday and personally i found it all very embarrassing for the Frenchman.
There was unprecedented disapproval towards the Gunners boss throughout the meeting. He told Arsenal fans nothing new and nothing we haven’t read a million times in the papers or heard a million times in his press conferences. He regurgitated the usual excuses, and took very little responsibility himself.
To be fair, he did make some valid points such as our bad luck with injuries to key players last season, but these have become tired excuses now. Fans don’t care anymore. Real answers are needed. We all knew Van Persie and Cesc were injury prone last season, the point was Arsene, you didn’t buy the required quality to back them up when they were on the sidelines, and you still haven’t to this day.
He also had the cheek to blame high ticket prices on the need to pay the players wages, which he describes as ‘extremely high’. Hmmm, this from the club that has a strict wage structure and refuses to pay it’s world class players the going market rate for wages, whilst charging the highest ticket prices in the UK?! This imbalance can only point to one thing, mediocre players being paid too much (Denilson, Squiallci & Bendtner spring to mind who are all on over £45,000 p/w). Something which is entirely Mr Wenger’s doing.
Anyway, watch the video of Wenger for yourself:
