Arsene Wenger: Ready for another tough game

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has been labelled “average” and behind the times by former Wales and Chelsea coach Raymond Verheijen.

Verheijen – who was right-hand man to Gary Speed and has also worked at the likes of Chelsea, Manchester City and Barcelona – made the claims in an angry Twitter attack on Wenger after Theo Walcott and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain picked up injuries in Arsenal’s 3-0 League Cup defeat at Sheffield Wednesday.

This is the latest in a long line of criticisms of Wenger from the outspoken Dutchman, who blames the Gunners boss for Aaron Ramsey’s wretched injury record.

Last week the 43-year-old suggested the midfielder should leave North London club, tweeting: “As mentioned before, if Arsenal don’t sort themselves out it’s best for Ramsey to leave to avoid further injuries.

“Wenger blames Wales for Ramsey injury. This is what we call denial. Maybe Wenger should check his own injury record?”
