Arsenal Supporters’ Trust criticise Arsene Wenger’s obsession with kids
Arsenal Supporters’ Trust has said Arsene Wenger risks holding the club back because of his “obsession” with developing young players.
Tim Payton, a spokesman for AST, has criticised the Gunners manager following Saturday’s 1-3 home defeat to Aston Villa.
Payton said: “We don’t know what’s going on but clearly there’s a manager that by his own words isn’t a big fan of spending money on strengthening the team through expensive player acquisition.
“His apparent obsession with being a developmental manager is in danger of holding the club back.”
Payton himself was criticised in the now infamous video above for not being outspoken enough in holding the club to account on behalf of supporters, so today’s statement has perhaps been influenced by those suggestions.
