Harry Redknapp issues warning to Arsene Wenger over Arsenal
Harry Redknapp discusses the possibility of Arsenal finishing outside the top four this season
Harry Redknapp has warned Arsene Wenger that his spell in charge of Arsenal will come to an end if the Gunners fail to finish in the Premier League’s top four.
The north London side managed to pip Tottenham Hotspur to second place in the table after a 4-0 victory over Aston Villa on the final day of the 2015/16 Premier League season.
However, Wenger was still criticised by his own supporters after Arsenal failed to win the Premier League title for the first time since 2004 and the Gunners finished the season without silverware.
The north Londoners are facing increased competition for a top-four place this term from champions Leicester City, derby rivals Tottenham and Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool, while Chelsea, Manchester City and Manchester United have all appointed world-class managers.
Speaking to BetSafe after Paul Dickov declared that Arsenal will finish outside of the top four this season, Redknapp predicted that Wenger will leave the Gunners should he fail to secure a Champions League qualification spot.
“That will be the end if they don’t make the top four; they’ve got to make the top four,” Redknapp told BetSafe.
Arsenal have reached the Champions League quarter-finals since 2010 after losing at the last-16 stage in the past six years.
