Paul Merson makes bold claim about Arsene Wenger and Arsenal

Paul Merson discusses whether Arsenal will win another trophy under Arsene Wenger

Paul Merson has boldly claimed that Arsene Wenger won’t win any trophy as Arsenal manager.

The 65-year-old is facing an uncertain future as Gunners boss after a disappointing season for the north London side at the Emirates Stadium.

Arsenal saw their Premier League title bid fade away in the second half of the season following defeats by Southampton, Manchester United and Swansea City in the second half of the season.

The north Londoners made premature exits in the FA Cup and the Champions League, losing to Watford in the domestic competition and suffering a 5-1 aggregate defeat by La Liga giants Barcelona.

Wenger has one year remaining on his current Arsenal deal amid reports that Atletico Madrid’s Diego Simeone or Southampton boss Ronald Koeman could replace the Frenchman.

Asked if the Arsenal manager would win another trophy in his reign, Merson told Fantasy FC podcast: “I don’t think he will.”
