Former Arsenal striker labels Wenger’s team a ‘painful to watch’

In the last few seasons, there has been little to celebrate for Arsenal.

Even recent FA Cup glory has failed to listen the mood of the supporters, many of whom are keen for a change in management.

Arsene Wenger has been in charge for the past two decades and has had a glittering career transforming the North London outfit into a Premier League force.

However, the team have not mounted a serious title challenge for years, and this season they are currently eight points behind fourth-placed Chelsea.

Not to mention, the Gunners are a mammoth 23 points adrift of leaders Manchester City, who suffered their first league defeat of the season in a 4-3 loss to Liverpool on Sunday.

The next few weeks could be crucial with regards to how Arsenal’s season pans out.

According to The Guardian, the Gunners’ star player Alexis Sanchez is on the verge of joining Manchester United, which would mean that the club have strengthened a direct rival, much like they did in 2012 by selling Robin van Persie to the Red Devils.

Numerous first-team players, including Mesut Ozil, are out of contract in the summer and will be eligible to leave the club for free at the end of the season.

On top of that, Arsenal’s winless league run extended to three matches on Sunday when the team were beaten 2-1 by Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium.

Kevin Campbell, who played for the Gunners between 1988 and 1995, tweeted a very honest view of the team’s current state.
