I believe in Wenger – Pires

The Gunners icon chats management, transfer business and the need to sign an understudy for Olivier Giroud


As Arsene Wenger once again finds himself on the receiving end of summer criticism, club icon Robert Pires believes his countryman is still the right man to lead Arsenal.

The manager has made only two signings since the culmination of the 2015-16 season in Granit Xhaka and Rob Holding and fans are concerned about defensive depth and a lack of goalscorers.

And while Pires feels Wenger could indeed add to his squad, the 42-year-old insists his former boss starts every season with the goal of winning titles.

Watch the video above to see the former Gunner chat all things Arsenal – including the importance of signing a back-up for Olivier Giroud – in an exclusive interview with Goal.
