Arsenal legend calls for No.2 addition

Published Add your comment

Former Arsenal midfielder Paul Davis has urged Arsene Wenger to bring in a new assistant manager to the club.

After an impressive start to the campaign, the Gunners look set to end the year without any silverware, which would make it six seasons without a trophy success.

Rather than firing the Frenchman, Davis believes Wenger needs a new number two to help challenge his ideas as manager of the north London club.

“I wouldn’t want to get rid of him or even consider that sort of stuff. He needs somebody alongside him that’s going to challenge him and ask him some questions and make him think," Davis told talkSPORT.

“I’m not sure if that’s happening, where he is being challenged or questioned on the style of play.

“They say the best managers are the ones who know their weaknesses and bring someone in who can fill in those gaps.”


The ex-Gunner was quick to praise the style of football played at the Emirates though, and believes fans should appreciate the skills displayed on the pitch week-in-week-out by the team.

“He’s given us some of the most fantastic football. I go there every week and watch them," continued Davis.

“Anyone that is moaning at it, I can understand the lack of winning trophies, but the style of football and the entertainment value is right up there with the best."
