Wenger must bring balance to Arsenal team, warns Tony Adams

The former Gunners captain believes the Frenchman needs to make defensive reinforcements if the north Londoners are to build on the success of Saturday’s FA Cup triumph

Former Arsenal captain Tony Adams believes that the club need to find the right “balance” to build on Saturday’s FA Cup triumph.

Aaron Ramsey scored an extra-time winner at Wembley to defeat Hull City 3-2 and seal the Gunners’ first trophy in nine years.

But the ex-defender feels that there is still work to be done and feels that the forthcoming transfer window could be pivotal for manager Arsene Wenger.

“I believe football clubs are about balance and I don’t think [Wenger]’s got the balance right,” Adams told Sky Sports News Radio.

“He’s got too many offensive players. Ozil was a fantastic signing and he’s a super player but let’s have some more at Arsenal and some more trophies.

“I do think that we’ve got a lot of those players – [Santi] Cazorla, [Jack] Wilshere, Ramsey and [Tomas] Rosicky has had a super season.

“I’d like to see two strong full-backs and maybe one more strong midfield player – Manu Petit or Patrick Vieira back in the day – someone to just sit in there and be a bit different.”
