Piers Morgan has long been anti-Arsene Wenger, and in his latest angry rant he claims the success Tottenham and Leicester City have experienced this season merely highlights the Frenchman’s failures and reinforces his point that Wenger must be sacked, as reported by talkSPORT.
Even the staunchest Wenger supporters have found it difficult to support him at times this season, with his stubbornness and refusal to change really making things difficult. It seems like he’s lost the ability to motivate the players when he needs to, and instead of arguably overperforming with a team that can’t compete financially with the teams above, he’s underperforming with a team that on paper should have won the league at a canter.
Piers Morgan believes this failure has shown once again that Wenger isn’t the right man for the job, and has called for his head at the end of the season.
“I’ve had to deal with Arsenal fans telling me I’m an idiot, that Wenger’s a genius, that [Olivier] Giroud’s the best striker in the world and here we are – same old, same old,” he said.
“Whether it’s Leicester or Tottenham who end up champions, where does that leave every excuse that Arsene Wenger’s given us for ten years at Arsenal, for why we have failed to win the Premier League and Champions League.
“What about all those excuses – the stadium, the money, the fact Chelsea, United and these other teams have wealthy owners, ignoring the fact we have one, and so on.
“Every excuse we have had for the last decade has now been blown apart because we have two teams [above us] who don’t have superstars, don’t have buckets of cash, don’t have fancy new stadiums. What they have is unbelievable team spirit, brilliant desire, great hunger and a will to win.
“I haven’t seen that in Arsenal’s team now for the last decade.
“Put aside everything else. Rebuilding for a decade – he’s now built for the future and it’s failed. So he HAS TO GO!”
He’s certainly right that there’s a lack of hunger at the club, and it’s really unclear why that is. We could do with an injection of quality this summer too, but we really need to get that desire back in the side too.

If Arsene Wenger isn’t able to motivate the players anymore then unfortunately it may be time for him to move upstairs, and while that would be a shame, it may be necessary for the evolution of the club.
