Adams: Wenger should have left Arsenal before it ‘crumbles around’ him

Date Posted,June 1, 2017

Tony Adams reckons Arsene Wenger should have quit Arsenal after winning the FA Cup instead of signing a new contract.

Frenchman Wenger ended months of speculation and fan anger by agreeing a fresh two-year deal at the Emirates – to extend his stint at the club to 23 years.

But former skipper Adams has warned Wenger, and the club, that the Gunners’ squad is not good enough and will not win the title while Wenger is still at the north London outfit.

“I believe that this squad is not going to win the league in the next two years and it could possibly all crumble around him and I think that would be very sad,” Adams, who won the title twice with Wenger told Sky Sports .

“From one human being to another human being, I hope it doesn’t.

“I hoped, to be honest with you, that he’d gone out after the FA Cup win this year and said ‘enough is enough’ and find someone else to replace him, which also I don’t know who that is, I don’t know the legacy of Arsene.

“Maybe in the next two years he will have a legacy and he will get a transition of new coaches coming through, I don’t know.

“If he was doing that I’d say ‘fantastic Arsene, wonderful, you’ve done your legacy and gone out on top’.

“For me as a human being and a man who I worked with for six years and I’ve had a distant relationship with I suppose over the last 14 years, I just think he’s been the most successful Arsenal manager of all time, I don’t want that spoilt.

“I see signs of Arsene that he’s incredibly addicted to football and I don’t see that he’s got a life outside of it.

“We’ve talked about my ending of my career and I don’t want him to go on too long and for it to crumble and end in tears and all of us don’t like Arsene because it would be so sad.”
