Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger risks ruining his legacy at the club, according to former defender Danny Mills.
The French coach has come under pressure just three games into the Premier League season following some disappointing results.
The Gunners have only acquired three points from a possible nine, which has left them 16th in the table heading into the international break.
Wenger’s men managed to come from behind to claim a 4-3 triumph over Leicester City on the opening weekend, but they were beaten 1-0 by Stoke City the following week.
The team came under heavy fire after their lacklustre performance in a 4-0 defeat to Liverpool at Anfield last Sunday.
As well as questioning the players’ desire and commitment, Wenger’s tactics were put under the microscope.
Last season, groups of fans were calling for the 67-year-old to leave his job, but he ended up signing a new two-year contract.
While on Sky Sports’ ‘The Debate’ show, Mills expressed concern about how Wenger will be remembered when he eventually retires.
“It’s like that boxer having one too many fights and it going wrong. If this is a really bad season, and they finish seventh or eighth, and don’t win anything, then that’s what Arsene will be remembered for. My worry would be that it destroys his legacy and everything he has achieved. It will be soured and his legacy will be tarnished.”
