Arsenal Legend Campbell Feels Wenger’s Team Will Fall Short In Title Race This Season

Reports are out claiming that Arsenal legend Sol Campbell feels Arsene Wenger’s team will fall short in the title race this season.

Francis Coquelin

Petr Cech, the former Chelsea goalkeeper who made his own switch across London in a £10million deal this summer, was impressive against Liverpool, but Campbell fears that Arsenal need to spend more.

“There was talk of Karim Benzema coming,” he told the Daily Mail.

“And really if they want to win the Premier League, Arsenal need to push the boat out to get those special players who will make a difference. You can’t make one big signing. Everybody does that, and you never move on.

“In the middle they need experienced players. They needn’t be especially big. Patrick Vieira was big but Gilberto was not massive, and he did a wonderful job.

“Francis Coquelin has done very well. But there are times when he is not in the position I want him to be in. Perhaps he also needs to learn that he is being tested every game, regardless of whether it’s an FA Cup tie against a third division team or in the Premier League. You have to do the same things. But where do you find a Patrick? Or a Petit?”
