Jamie Redknapp sends open message to Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger
Jamie Redknapp believes that it is time for Arsene Wenger to leave Arsenal this summer
Jamie Redknapp has told Arsene Wenger that it is time for him to leave Arsenal.
The Gunners boss has found himself under intense pressure in recent days after his club’s poor start to the new Premier League season.
Wenger watched his side be thoroughly outplayed as Arsenal suffered a humiliating 4-0 loss at the hands of Liverpool at Anfield on Sunday afternoon.
That result left Arsenal with just three points from their opening three games and with more pressure than ever on the Gunners manager.
Wenger signed a new two-year contract with the north London side back in June after leading the Gunners to FA Cup glory last season.
However, Arsenal missed out on Champions League qualification when they ended up fifth in the Premier League last term.
And former Liverpool midfielder Redknapp feels that it is time for Wenger to leave Arsenal.
Speaking on The Debate on Sky Sports on Wednesday night, Redknapp said: “We’re talking about Arsene Wenger. If we’re talking about the Premier League years, he’s written some of the best stories you could wish to see.
“Now it’s got to the stage, and this is not being nasty or bitter, but time moves on.
“Twenty years at the top, there is only one or two people who stay there for that long – [Alex] Ferguson and there are people at top businesses around the world.
“I think it gets to the stage where players, you just go to sleep listening to the team talks, which must be so boring.”
Arsenal have not won the Premier League title since their famous unbeaten triumph in the 2003-04 campaign.
The north London side will try to get back to winning ways when they take on Bournemouth at The Emirates after the international break on Saturday 9 September.
