Wenger urges Walcott to be patient

Published Add your comment

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has asked Theo Walcott to be patient in his demands to play as a central striker.

Walcott scored twice and played a starring role in the 6-1 Capital One Cup mauling of Coventry in the week that he said being played as the main forward could be instrumental in signing a new contract with the club.

Wenger said: "I'm not against it, I'm not against it at all but we try and at the moment there is big competition up front, we have a different formula and the team is doing well. His time will come for that and at the moment we have to be a bit patient. He is a great finisher now, in front of goal he is really absolutely amazing."
