Former Arsenal’s iconic manager Arsene Wenger believes Mikel Arteta has a top quality squad.
The Gunners have had a start to the season that poses many questions about manager Mikel Arteta’s ability to lead the club to its past glories.
Despite three straight losses and a win, Wenger has faith in Arteta’s team.
“First of all, honestly I like to usually say what I think, I believe in this situation I’m an Arsenal fan,” Wenger said via the Metro.
“After that, of course, when I talk about Arsenal it’s a sensitive subject and at the moment the timing is maybe not the best to talk.
Despite what Wenger describes as a talented squad of players, starting the season with fixtures against Chelsea and Manchester City was perhaps unlucky.
“I must say I find the squad full of quality. I’m not pessimistic because I feel they had two difficult games out of the first three – Chelsea on a high at home and of course after they go to Manchester City. Of course, you go to Man City and you can say it’s predictable that you could drop points.
Wenger also suggested that losing against Brentford in the first game of the season was Arsenal shooting Themselves in the foot.
“The bad result we made was in the first game against Brentford. After that it puts you straight away on the back foot.
“I wish them to recover and I think they will. The potential is there so I hope they come back,” the Frenchman concluded.
Coming up next for the Gunners is a trip to Burnley.
