Claudio Ranieri’s four-word response when asked if Arsene Wenger can lead Arsenal to the title again
The former Chelsea boss believes Arsene Wenger is capable of building another title-winning side at Arsenal
Claudio Ranieri believes Arsene Wenger is capable of building another title-winning team at Arsenal.
The Gunners boss is coming under increasing pressure after the north London side’s well-documented struggles in the Champions League and the Premier League this season.
Arsenal lost 3-0 to Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park on Monday night as the Gunners failed to register a shot on target in the second half of the London derby.
Wenger’s side are in sixth place in the Premier League table and seven points behind fourth-placed Manchester City with seven games to play.
Arsenal crashed out of the Champions League at the last-16 stage after a 10-2 aggregate loss to Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich in March.
Wenger’s current deal is set to expire at the end of the season, although Arsenal have offered their long-serving manager a new two-year contract extension.
Speaking to Sky Sports about Wenger’s future as Arsenal manager and whether the 67-year-old could guide the north London side to another title, Ranieri said:
“Yes. I think so…”
Ranieri was in charge of Chelsea when Wenger won his last Premier League title.
