Gunners need that extra five per cent

Published Add your comment

Arsene Wenger admits that the season has been disappointing for Arsenal, but the French manager won't be making too many changes to the squad over the summer, insisting that the Gunners are '95 per cent right'.

Arsenal went yet another season without a trophy, their sixth in a row, as they narrowly missed out on the Carling Cup, as well as falling out of contention for the Barclays Premier League title.

Wenger has been the centre of criticism amongst fans since the season went away for Arsenal, but the Frenchman insists the side are closer than ever to achieving their ultimate goals.

“I would call it disappointed love,” Wenger said, in relation to fans’ reactions to the disappointment of last season. “It was cruel and sometimes you get excessive responses.

“But that doesn’t mean we have to change our philosophy or the way the club’s run.

“We get it 95 per cent right but must gain that five per cent because it’s so frustrating to flirt with success like we’ve done.”

Wenger made it clear that he believes Arsenal are on the brink of winning the coveted title, and the fans will get the fruit of their labour very soon.

“The fans are unhappy we didn’t win the Premier League, but we are close,” the Arsenal manager said.
