Former Arsenal player William Gallas has voiced his thoughts concerning what Arsene Wenger and what his squad have to do in order to truly contend for the Premier League title, which is what they have been aiming to accomplish for the past few years but have failed to lift in over 10 years.
For the past few years, Arsenal has been edging closer and closer to the 1rst place spot of the top tier English League. During the 2015-16 season of the English League, Arsenal had to settle with the 2nd position and in the season prior to that one in the 2014-15 season, Arsenal secured the 3rd spot.
It’s evident that Arsenal has been progressing but they just aren’t able to go all out and win the Premier League and according to William Gallas, what the team of Arsene Wenger needs to do is stop attempting to play ‘’perfect football’’
The 39 year old retiree William Gallassaid: “When you play away from home, you have to be ready physically and mentally. Sometimes, Arsenal want to play perfect football too much. Sometimes you have to say, ‘No, stop.’ You have to be solid at the back, reply physically, and after that you impose your style of play. And unfortunately with Arsenal, it’s not like that.”
During the playing career of William Gallas, he spent 4 years performing with the Arsenal jersey and the Frenchman believes that Arsene Wenger needs to stop attempting to implant his own philosophies and teach his team to scrap for points in their away games.
Whether or not Arsenal win the Premier League is something that only time will tell but Gallas is certain that Wenger follows his advices, they are going to have a better chance of accomplishing their primary goal.
