Wigan boss piles pressure on Arsenal manager ahead of cup clash

Wigan manager Uwe Rosler knows that all the pressure is on Arsenal ahead of their FA Cup semi-final at Wembley today, as reported by the Evening Standard.

Arsene Wenger’s future is in doubt at the Emirates stadium and a trophy may be the only thing to keep him in a job in North London.

FA Cup holders Wigan travel south as the major underdogs and Rosler feels that will only benefit his team.

The former Brentford boss lost at Wembley with the Bees last season and so has even more passion to turn that around today, with the current Wigan squad have already been to the national stadium three times in the past 12 months.

“The longer we can stay in the game tomorrow and can create uncertainty, the better,” Rosler said.

“There is a little bit of unrest at Arsenal and expectation there is sky high. So the longer we are in the tie, the more difficult it will be for them.

“Everybody has highlighted that they need to win the FA Cup, their own players even said that this week, so obviously that puts a bit of extra pressure on them.”
